The reason why I lodged amendment S1M-2742.1 is that which I made clear two weeks ago, when I first saw the provisional business motion. I am seriously concerned that we are about to amend the bill in such a radical manner that, at the end of the debate, it may be difficult to work out exactly what we are debating. For that reason, it is important that an appropriate time elapses between the completion of amendments and the debate on the motion to pass the bill.

I move amendment S1M-2742.1, to leave out "no later than 6 hours" and insert:

"to be taken on another day."
