May I, on behalf of the Committee, welcome you to the Chair, Mr Howarth. It is a sign of the importance of the Bill that you have been assigned to chair it, and we look forward to deliberating under your chairmanship and that of my hon. Friend the Member for Shipley.

The Programming Sub-Committee met last Thursday and agreed the dates and times upon which the Committee will meet, and the witnesses who should appear before us during the first four sessions. Those details are set out on the amendment paper. Unfortunately, the Institute of Directors, who we had hoped would attend the sitting this morning, are now unable to send a representative, but will submit written evidence. The final panel this morning will therefore hear evidence from the Confederation of British Industry and the British Chambers of Commerce.
