I beg to move amendment 3, in clause 15, page 5, line 8, leave out subsection (2 ).

This amendment removes the “privilege amendment” inserted by the Lords.

I will address both clause 15 and amendment 3 together. Clause 15 will give the Act its short title. The long title will be an Act to make provision about the National Citizen Service Trust; the short title will be the National Citizen Service Act 2017. The clause will allow the Act to be referred to by its short title when it is being cited, including in other legislation and documents.

Amendment 3 is a technical and procedural amendment to remove the privilege amendment that was made on Third Reading in the other place.

Amendment 3 agreed to.

Clause 15, as amended, accordingly ordered to stand part of the Bill.

Bill, as amended, to be reported.

Committee rose.
