Welcome to this Public Bill Committee. Before we begin, I have a few preliminary announcements. Members will all understand the need to respect social distancing guidance; if necessary, I will intervene to remind you. Note passing should be electronic only. The Hansard reporters would be grateful if Members emailed their speaking notes to hansardnotes @parliament.uk.
The selection list for today’s sitting is available in the room and online. It shows how the selected amendments and clauses have been grouped together for debate. Formal decisions on amendments and clauses will be taken in the order they appear in the Bill.
