I remind the Committee that there is a money resolution in connection with the Bill, copies of which are available in the Room. Adequate notice should be given of amendments. As a general rule, I do not intend to call starred amendments, including any that may be reached during an afternoon sitting.Clause 1 Transfer to Lord Chancellor of functions relating to Judicial Appointments Commission
