I beg to move amendment No. 13, in page 36, line 26, leave out subsection (13).

Members of the Committee will be familiar with the procedures of the House and therefore know that the Lords amendment that added the words in subsection (13) is a standard provision in Bills that are introduced in the other place, protecting the privilege of this House to control charges on public funds. Before I am challenged by the hon. Member for Daventry, I point out that it is equally a standard procedure for the Committee that considers the Bill to remove it, and that is the purpose of amendment No. 13.
