I beg to move amendment 136, in schedule 7, page 46, line 35, at end insert—

‘( ) Omit sections 78 to 81 (provision in relation to control orders).’.

With this it will be convenient to take Government amendments 137 and 138.

The amendments are technical or drafting amendments to schedule 7, which itself makes minor and consequential amendments to other legislation that will be required as a result of the passing of the Bill.

Amendments 136 and 138 simply move paragraph 7 of the schedule, so that rather than sitting under its own “Miscellaneous” heading, it sits with the other repeals relating to the Counter-Terrorism Act 2008. Amendment 137 will repeal additional provisions in the Crime and Security Act 2010. They were not originally included in schedule 7 because they will amend the 2005 Act, which will itself be repealed by clause 1 of the Bill. However, I understand that best practice is to make a specific repeal, which the amendment will deliver.

Amendment 136 agreed to.

Amendments made: 137, in schedule 7, page 47, line 2, at end insert—

‘( ) Omit—

(a) section 56 (persons subject to control orders: powers of search and seizure), and

(b) section 58(16) (extent of section 56).’.

Amendment 138, in schedule 7, page 47, leave out lines 3 to 5.—(James Brokenshire.)

Schedule 7, as amended, agreed to.

Ordered, That further consideration be now adjourned. —(Mr Newmark.)

Adjourned till Tuesday 5 July at half-past Ten o’clock.
