We now come to the second group of Standing Orders and amendments. I want to draw attention to two matters in this regard. First — and I am indebted to one Member who pointed this out to me earlier — the list includes two amendments numbered 26. The first should be numbered 36.

With regard to amendments 1A, 1B, 2A and 2B, if these are all moved, then we will come first, of course, to the vote on amendment 1A. If amendments 1A and 2A are passed, we need not move to amendments 1B and 2B as they are alternative proposals. However, if amendments. 1A and 2A are not passed, amendments 1B and 2B may be moved.

The first amendment is in the name of Mr Peter Robinson.
