On a point of order, Mr. Griffiths. I am not sure whether, in this sitting, we will reach clause 135 stand part. My question is, if we should happen to do so, would it be in order to table amendments to clause 136 for debate on Thursday or would the fact that we had agreed that clause 135 stood part of the Bill mean that we had reached clause 136 so we could not table amendments?

As long as you table them so that they do not get starred, you can go ahead.

Clause 135, as amended, ordered to stand part of the Bill.

Further consideration adjourned.—[Margaret Moran.]

Adjourned accordingly at twenty-eight minutes to Six o'clock till Thursday 1 April at half-past Nine o'clock.
