I beg to move amendment No. 2, in clause 22, page 18, line 29, leave out subsection (2).

I do not need to detain the Committee with this amendment, which is a technical change to remove the privilege amendment made in the other place. Hon. Members will be aware that the financial powers of the other place are restricted by the rights and privileges of the House. The text in subsection (2) is inserted in all Bills with financial implications that begin their life in the other place, and it is standard procedure to remove that privilege amendment after Second Reading in this House.

Amendment agreed to.

Clause 22, as amended, ordered to stand part of the Bill.

Schedule agreed to.
