The convention and the devolution guidance notes that update it state that we seek a legislative consent Motion before the last opportunity for amending. In your Lordships' House, that would be Third Reading. Therefore, it was always anticipated that it would not be necessary to go back into Committee. I hope that after discussing the important point made by my noble friend Lord Forsyth we can go ahead and debate the important issues around the financial provisions in the Bill.

Motion agreed.

Clause 30 : Scottish rate of income tax

Amendment 53

Moved by Lord Forsyth of Drumlean

53: Clause 30, page 23, line 6, at end insert-

"(9) This section is subject to section (Referendum about Scottish rate of income tax)."
