Before we begin, I have a few preliminary announcements. Please could all electronic devices be switched to silent. Tea and coffee are not allowed in the room during the Committee’s sittings. The notice period for amendments is three working days; amendments tabled with inadequate notice will not be formally selected.

As the Committee knows, there will be two minutes’ silence at 11 am to mark Armistice day. I intend to suspend the proceedings to allow the silence to be observed. Division bells will be rung to indicate the beginning and the end of the silence.

The Committee will now consider the programme motion on the amendment paper. We will then consider a motion to report written evidence, followed by a motion to permit the Committee to deliberate in private. Assuming that the last of those motions is agreed to, the Committee will move into private session. Once the Committee has deliberated, the witnesses and members of the public will be invited back into the room and our oral evidence session will begin.
