I beg to move,

That, if proceedings on the Off-Road Vehicles (Registration) Bill are not completed at this day’s sitting, the Committee do meet on Wednesday 11th July at 9.30 a.m. and thereafter on Wednesdays at 9.30 a.m. when the House is sitting.

I want to say two or three sentences. Although I anticipate that the House will agree to the money resolution in the fairly immediate future, I have chosen 11 July as the next sitting date, because we are all waiting with great anticipation for the new Government that the Chancellor will put together, and I am sure that we all wish my hon. Friend the Minister every success in what is likely to be an interesting reshuffle. Even though I think that he got it wrong on the Bill on Second Reading, he is a very assiduous and hard-working Minister. However, given that discussions will have to take place between myself and my hon. Friend, if he is not promoted, it is sensible for the information of the Committee if we wait until 11 July before we return to discuss the Bill.
