I remind the Committee that there is a money resolution connected with the Bill, copies of which are available in the Room.

Motion made, and Question proposed,

That, if proceedings on the Gangmasters (Licensing) Bill are not completed at this day's sitting, the Committee do meet on Thursday 29th April at 9.30 am—[Jim Sheridan.]

Although my point is not directly related to the sittings motion, it might ease the work of Members and therefore be helpful if I make it now. I have asked my officials to provide a draft of the Bill as it would read were all the amendments made. If I have your permission, Mr. Illsley, and that of the Committee, I can make that available to Committee members now. As many of the amendments are quite complex, doing so might ease the pressures on the Committee.

I am sure that the Committee will be grateful for that provision.

Question put and agreed to.
