On a point of order, Presiding Officer. I intimate that, on the basis that there has been a reasonable kick of the ball in respect of my amendment 55, I would be quite relaxed about my remaining amendments in group 30 being taken en bloc.

That point is material. At this stage, because we have taken one more grouping than was anticipated, we are ahead of schedule. As it is likely that the next grouping will take longer than the 12 minutes that remain for our consideration of the bill this morning, I propose to suspend the amendment stage at this point. Members should not, however, leave the chamber.
