On a point of order, Mrs. Anderson. I welcome you to the Chair. We look forward to serving under your chairmanship. In our previous sitting, Sir Nicholas asked the Government to make available to members of the Committee copies of past legislation on this subject, much of which is being amended by the Bill. I have looked into how we might do that.

Unfortunately, the printed version of the legislation is so old that it would be confusing. It has never been reprinted since having been amended over the years by various Acts. Copyright rules do not allow us to print the online version of the legislation that the Government use and make it available to hon. Members. However, the Library has identified an online version that is available to all hon. Members. In the letter to Sir Nicholas, copies of which I have put on the centre table, the Library has provided instructions so that all hon. Members can access the online version and print it out for themselves.

Thank you. I am sure that such information is helpful to all members of the Committee.
