On a point of order, Mr. Gale. Clause 34 refers to schedule 7.

The clause says:

Schedule 7, which makes provision about charitable incorporated organisations, has effect.”

My reservation, which I hope the Minister will agree to consider by Report, is that the schedule incorporates a pointless acronym into law.

It being One o’clock, The Chairman adjourned the Committee without Question put, pursuant to the Standing Order.

Adjourned till this day at Four o'clock.
