Before we begin, I will make a few preliminary points. Please switch electronic devices to silent. Tea and coffee are not allowed during the sittings. We will first consider the programme motion on the amendment paper. We will then consider a motion to allow us to deliberate in private about our questions before the oral evidence sessions, and then a motion to enable the reporting of written evidence for publication. In view of the time available, I hope that we can take those matter formally, without debate.



(1) the Committee shall (in addition to its first meeting at 9.25 am on Tuesday 27 October) meet at 2 pm on Tuesday 27 October;

(2) the Committee shall hear oral evidence on Tuesday 27 October as follows—




Until no later than 10 am

Office of Tax Simplification

Until no later than 10.45 am

HM Treasury

(3) the proceedings shall (so far as not previously concluded) be brought to a conclusion at 5 pm on Tuesday 27 October.— (Mel Stride.)


That, subject to the discretion of the Chair, any written evidence received by the Committee shall be reported to the House for publication—(Mel Stride.)


That, at this and any subsequent meeting at which oral evidence is to be heard, the Committee shall sit in private until the witnesses are admitted.—(Mel Stride.)
