I wholly agree with what the noble Lord says, and I would have drawn attention to it if I had not been so excited by the prospect that, instead of a weekend off after tonight, I shall spend my time closeted with the Minister's officials. I can offer them 3 am on Sunday morning or 7 pm on Sunday evening in between writing my speeches for Monday's proceedings on this Bill, should there be any. I do not want to go on for too long, so I shall resume my seat and beg leave to withdraw the amendment.

Amendment 66ZA withdrawn.

Amendment 66ZB

Moved by Lord Lipsey

66ZB: Clause 11, page 9, leave out lines 25 to 27 and insert- where U is the population of the United Kingdom aged 18 or over minus the population of the constituencies mentioned in rule 6"
