My Lords, as I understand it, the amendments will be dealt with in order. I believe that the vote would be taken first on the amendment of the noble Baroness, Lady Miller. If that amendment were carried, I believe that the vote on the amendment of the noble Lord, Lord Lester, could still take place, but votes could not be taken on the other amendments as they would all fall away. That is my understanding. I am sure that someone will correct me if I have misunderstood the procedure.
