These are simply minor and technical amendments, and I hope that the Committee will be happy to accept them. Amendment. No. 24 amends  clause 14 to correct a minor drafting error, and ensures that subsection (2) correctly cross-refers to an order made under sections 12 and 13.

[Hywel Williams in the Chair]

Amendment No. 25 amends clause 45 of the Bill by removing subsection (2), the privilege amendment inserted by convention in the final stage of the Bill’s passage in the other place. The subsection reserves the Commons’ rights in relation to the financial implications of the Bill, and is no longer needed now that the Bill has been passed to this House. So, Mr. Williams, I hope that Members will be happy to accept the Government amendments.

Amendment agreed to.

Clause 14, as amended, ordered to stand part of the Bill.
