Amendment No. 408 was due to be considered with amendment No. 376, but that was not discussed. It was for the hon. Gentleman to catch my eye at that point if he so wished, and he did not do so.
Clause 105 in effect freezes a scheme during the assessment period. Subsection (3) states:
''No further contributions . . . may be paid''.
However, it should be made clear that that would not prevent a statutory debt being payable to the trustees. If the Under-Secretary thinks that the Bill is clear, no doubt he will explain why. Alternatively, he might think that that needs to be dealt with, if not now perhaps later on.
Question put and agreed to.
Clause 105, as amended, ordered to stand part of the Bill.
Clause 106 ordered to stand part of the Bill.
