Peter Atkinson: There are no further questions. As you have a little more time before this particular evidence session is over, if there are any other points that you would like to make to the Committee please feel free to do so.

Public Bill Committee: (20 Jan 2009)

Peter Atkinson: Thank you. Are there any further points from the Committee on that? No. Thank you both for coming along and for your interesting contribution to the debate about this Bill.

Public Bill Committee: (20 Jan 2009)

Peter Atkinson: I welcome our two representatives from the Local Government Association and thank them both for coming here. We have until seven o’clock, in theory, but I rather suspect that there will be a Division shortly, after 10 minutes to 7, in which case today’s business will come to a premature end, if Mr. Watts is quick on his feet. For the record, Councillors, could you please introduce...

Public Bill Committee: (20 Jan 2009)

Peter Atkinson: Thank you. If Members have no further questions for this panel, that brings us to the  end of our business for today. The Committee will sit again at 9 o’clock on Thursday, but this time in the Boothroyd room.

Peter Atkinson: After our evidence sessions of last week, we now move to more familiar territory.

Public Bill Committee: Business Rate Supplements Bill (27 Jan 2009)

Peter Atkinson: Order. I must stop the hon. Gentleman. The Programming Sub-Committee has set a timetable for this Committee. The matter that he raises has absolutely nothing to do with the contents of the Bill.

Public Bill Committee: Business Rate Supplements Bill (27 Jan 2009)

Peter Atkinson: Order. It is clear that nothing in the Bill is relevant to what the hon. Gentleman is saying. As to what happens in another place, that is up to another place, and is equally irrelevant. I appreciate what he is trying to do, but it is not in order.

Public Bill Committee: Business Rate Supplements Bill: Clause 1 (27 Jan 2009)

Peter Atkinson: With this it will be convenient to discuss the following: amendment 25, in clause 4, page 3, line 21, leave out from beginning to second ‘ballot’ and insert ‘a’. Amendment 5, in clause 4, page 3, line 21, leave out— ‘where there is to be’. Amendment 6, in clause 4, page 3, line 21, leave out ‘, the ballot’. Amendment 7, in clause 4, page 3, line...

Public Bill Committee: Business Rate Supplements Bill: Clause 1 (27 Jan 2009)

Peter Atkinson: Before I call the Minister, as the clause before us is central to the Bill, if hon. Members want to debate it I suggest that they do so now. I will accept a more wide-ranging debate, rather than wait for a clause stand part debate at the end. That is a warning shot for anybody who has anything else to say, before I call the Minister.

Public Bill Committee: Business Rate Supplements Bill: Clause 1 (27 Jan 2009)

Peter Atkinson: No, we cannot do that. We would only vote on amendment 1 at this stage. If hon. Members want to vote on the subsequent amendments, which have been grouped with amendment 1 for the convenience of debate, they will have to be voted on in their proper place in the Bill later.

Public Bill Committee: Business Rate Supplements Bill: Clause 1 (27 Jan 2009)

Peter Atkinson: That is correct.

Public Bill Committee: Business Rate Supplements Bill: Clause 1 (27 Jan 2009)

Peter Atkinson: I am getting some helpful guidance. If hon. Members indicate that they wish to vote on amendment 25 when that comes, they will not be able to vote on amendment 5, as the one cancels out the other. So voting will be restricted to amendment 25 or amendment 5, but not both.

Public Bill Committee: Business Rate Supplements Bill: Clause 1 (27 Jan 2009)

Peter Atkinson: Yes. I am sorry to have interrupted, Mr. Rogerson.

Public Bill Committee: Business Rate Supplements Bill: Clause 2 (27 Jan 2009)

Peter Atkinson: With this it will be convenient to discuss the following: amendment 23, in clause 2, page 2, leave out lines 1 to 5. Amendment 24, in clause 3, page 2, leave out lines 44 and 45. Amendment 38, in clause 5, page 3, line 29, leave out subsection (2). Amendment 39, in clause 5, page 3, line 36, leave out subsection (4). Amendment 44, in schedule 2, page 23, line 26, leave out sub-paragraph (3)....

Public Bill Committee: Business Rate Supplements Bill: Clause 2 (27 Jan 2009)

Peter Atkinson: Order. Nor will the hon. Gentleman. That is out of order.

Public Bill Committee: Business Rate Supplements Bill: Clause 2 (27 Jan 2009)

Peter Atkinson: Order. May I say to the hon. Gentleman and the Minister that we are not having a debate about that issue, so I would be grateful if we could call it a day?

Public Bill Committee: Business Rate Supplements Bill: Clause 2 (27 Jan 2009)

Peter Atkinson: Is the hon. Gentleman proposing to withdraw this amendment?

Public Bill Committee: Business Rate Supplements Bill: Clause 3 (27 Jan 2009)

Peter Atkinson: With this it will be convenient to discuss amendment 2, in clause 3, page 2, line 18, at beginning insert ‘primary and secondary’.

Public Bill Committee: Business Rate Supplements Bill: Clause 3 (27 Jan 2009)

Peter Atkinson: With this it will be convenient to discuss amendment 4, in clause 3, page 2, line 27, leave out ‘the Greater London Authority’ and insert ‘a levying authority’.
