I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time.

The new clause is straightforward in that it provides clarity on the definition of “member of the House of Lords” and “peer” for the purposes of the Bill. It makes it clear that peers who are disqualified from attending under other provisions, such as MEPs, retain their membership and that the Bill applies to the Law Lords.
