I welcome you to the Chair, Sir Roger.

I was mid-sentence when we adjourned and I am desperately trying to remember how the sentence ended. I am pretty convinced it would have ended with: I beg to ask leave to withdraw the amendment.

Amendment, by leave, withdrawn.

I am satisfied that matters arising from the clause have been adequately debated. I therefore propose to put clause stand part to the Committee.
