We now return to the self-explanatory and less contentious clauses of the Bill. The clause provides that orders made under the two order-making powers in the Bill under clause 7(6), relating to the definition of identity documents, and under clause 10(4), specifying persons whom the Crown may ask to provide information to verify passport applications, will require consideration by both Houses under the affirmative procedure. So it protects the interests of this House and will be welcome in all parts of the Committee.

Question put and agreed to.

Clause 11 accordingly ordered to stand part of the Bill.
