I beg to move amendment No. 1, in page 19, line 20, leave out subsection (5).

This is the first and last Government amendment in the course of our deliberations. It is designed to remove subsection (5), which was introduced by the Lords to avoid questions of privilege. Although I must not use the word ``procedural'', because I have been ticked off for my abuse of the word, the subsection is a standard procedural device to ensure that this House retains the right to decide financial matters in Bills originating in the other place, and that is why we seek to remove it.

Amendment agreed to.

Clause 26, as amended, ordered to stand part of the Bill.
