I beg to move amendment 7, in clause 49, page 54, line 41, leave out subsection (2).

This amendment removes the words inserted by the Lords to avoid questions of privilege.

This amendment removes the standard-form provision added on Third Reading in the other place to avoid the issue of privilege. That is the usual means by which proper recognition is given to the privileges of the Commons in respect of financial matters, while allowing the provisions of the Bill to be properly considered in its passage through the other place. It has served its purpose and should now be removed.

Amendment 7 agreed to.

Clause 49, as amended, ordered to stand part of the Bill.
