I beg to move amendment No. 23, in
clause 110, page 59, line 28, leave out subsection (2).
This is a technical amendment, known as a privilege amendment, that is inserted in Bills that commence in the House of Lords and deal with charges on public funds. It is intended to avoid formal infringement on the financial privileges of the House of Commons. It is designed to show that the Lords are able to legislate on such matters, but that that ability is not absolute, being subject to the tolerances of the House of Commons. The amendment is a procedural device to avoid the impression that the other place has authorised expenditure.
Amendment agreed to.
Clause 110, as amended, ordered to stand part of the Bill.
Further consideration adjourned.—[Ms Bridget Prentice.]
Adjourned accordingly at a quarter-past Four o'clock till Thursday 10 July at half-past Nine o'clock.
