I beg to move amendment 17, in clause 31, page 26, line 34, leave out subsection (2).

This amendment removes the privilege amendment inserted by the Lords.

With this it will be convenient to discuss clause stand part.

The amendment is a minor change that removes the privilege amendment inserted in the House of Lords. Privilege amendments are inserted to acknowledge that it is the privilege of the House of Commons to control charges on the people or on public funds. Its removal is a formality.

Amendment 17 agreed to.

Clause 31, as amended, ordered to stand part of the Bill.
