On a point or order, Mr. Gale. In the Chairman’s provisional selection of amendments to clause 20 of 17 January, there was a whole line of amendments to be discussed including new clause 13, which stands in my name. Those amendments have disappeared not only from the programming for clause 20 but from all programming. Is there an explanation for that?

I apologise for the pause. I needed clarification because I was not party to that process. A number of amendments were withdrawn, with which the new clause to which the hon. Gentleman refers was grouped. The new clause will therefore be debated, as and when it is reached, with the other new clauses at the end of the Bill. Is that clear?

Mr. Drewindicated assent.
