These amendments deal with elections to the commission. I think that there will be much debate about that matter in future.

I supported Karen Gillon's amendment at stage 2, but was unaware that, in doing so, I had voted to increase so dramatically the number of those eligible to vote. My preferred position had always been to have one vote per house or household. Therefore, I support the Government amendments, which correct the position.
