I beg to move amendment 3, in clause 5, page 4, line 29, leave out paragraph (c) and insert—

“(c) one of each of the following—

(i) a barrister in England and Wales, and

(ii) a solicitor of the Senior Courts of England and Wales, and

(iii) a legal executive appointed to the Committee by the Lords Chancellor in concurrence with the Lord Chief Justice;

(iv) a magistrate of England and Wales appointed by the Lord Chief Justice; and”

This amendment would require that the Online procedure rule committee has representatives from different parts of the legal professions.
