On a point of order, Mr. Stevenson. I have tabled a new clause to the Bill concerning the union modernisation fund. For the convenience of the Committee, I have put the statement on that matter on the Table, so that we can discuss it when we come to the new clause in due course.

That is helpful information, but it is not my intention to allow any debate on that new clause now. We look forward to that new clause as and when it reaches the Committee.Clause 27 Role of companion at disciplinary or grievance hearing
