Welcome to our line-by-line consideration of the National Insurance Contributions Bill. Before we start, some brief explanation may be useful to those who are relatively new to Public Bill Committees, although I see a group of veterans in front of me.

The selection list for today’s sitting is available in the room. Only one new clause has been tabled and that has been grouped with the clause 1 stand part debate. Once we have debated the first group, we will proceed through the Bill clause by clause. Schedules will be debated after the clause that introduces them. A Member may speak more than once in a single debate. If no Members wish to speak to a clause or schedule, it can be agreed to formally.

I hope that explanation is helpful. We are now beginning the formal proceedings on the Bill; I remind Members that they may wish to consult the guide to the rules relating to the conduct of Members, particularly in relation to declarations of interest.
