Broadcasting (Radio Multiplex Services) Bill

– in a Public Bill Committee at 12:00 am on 31 January 2017.

Alert me about debates like this

[Mark Pritchard in the Chair]

Welcome to this Public Bill Committee. Before we begin, there are some housekeeping points. Will colleagues ensure that their phones are turned to silent? As colleagues will be aware, tea or coffee are not allowed in these sittings.

Indeed. Thank you for that. I do not see any, but help yourselves to the water.

No amendments have been tabled, so we will begin with a debate on clause 1. I suggest that Members make any remarks they have about clause 2 during that debate. In other words, we will have a general debate about the contents of the Bill on the question that clause 1 stand part. If the Committee is content with that suggestion, I will put the question on clause 2 once we have completed consideration of clause 1 on the basis that those provisions will have been debated.

Clause 1
