With this it will be convenient to discuss Government amendments Nos. 36 to 40, and 68 to 71.

These amendments are fairly technical and non-contentious, so if the Committee is happy with them, I shall not make a speech about them.

Amendment agreed to.

clause 57, page 37, line 7, at end insert—

'( ) Section 18 of the Antiterrorism, Crime and Security Act 2001 (c.24) (restriction on disclosure of information for overseas purposes) has effect in relation to a disclosure authorised by subsection (2) as it has effect in relation to a disclosure authorised by any of the provisions to which section 17 of that Act applies.'.—[Mr. Pond.]
