I beg to move amendment No. 16, in page 9, line 8, leave out subsection (6).

The amendment will remove the subsection on Lords privilege. I hope that it will give the Committee some satisfaction to know that we shall all have agreed to one amendment, albeit that it is a Government amendment.

Amendment agreed to.

Clause 20, as amended, ordered to stand part of the Bill.

Schedules 1 to 5 agreed to.

Question proposed, That the Chairman do report the Bill, as amended, to the House.
