I beg to move amendment No. 179, in page 32, line 29, leave out '(5)' and insert '(6)'.

I can certainly address this amendment, which corrects a cross-referencing error. Our intention is to ensure that the Competition Commission includes in its report decisions on the appropriate remedies for any substantial lessening of competition that occurs. I urge the Committee to support the amendment.

Amendment agreed to.

Amendment made: No. 180, in page 32, line 48, after '(8)' insert—

'in a case where it has decided by virtue of subsection (2)(a) or (5)(a) that there is or will be a substantial lessening of competition,'.—[Miss Melanie Johnson.]

Clause 45, as amended, ordered to stand part of the Bill.

Clauses 46 to 50 ordered to stand part of the Bill.
