I must seek to stir up some controversy but, unfortunately, clause 2 might not do that. It will simply change the name of the Industrial and Provident Society Act 1965 and other Acts concerning industrial and provident societies so that “Industrial and Provident Societies” is replaced by “Co-operative and Community Benefit Societies and Credit Unions” in the titles.

Question put and agreed to.

Clause 2 accordingly ordered to stand part of the Bill.

Clause 3 ordered to stand part of the Bill.

Does the right hon. Gentleman wish clause 4 to be decided formally?

Clause 4s can be controversial, but not on this occasion, so I should like to proceed formally.

Clause 4 ordered to stand part of the Bill.
