The clause seeks, as part of a new structure for providing court buildings in the City of London, to remove an obligation in statute requiring the City of London Corporation to provide magistrates court capacity in its current location in the City of London magistrates court. The new purpose-built replacement courthouse will significantly improve the quality of court provision in the square mile and strengthen our justice system.

Question put and agreed to.

Clause 44 accordingly ordered to stand part of the Bill.
