I beg to move amendment 1, in clause 1, page 2, line 9, at end insert—

‘(6A) A person’s choice to initiate, conduct, progress or participate in proceedings by electronic means, does not prevent them from then deciding at a subsequent stage to continue by non-electronic means.”

The amendment would allow persons who have started the specified kinds of proceedings by electronic means, to change to non-electronic means.
