Good afternoon, colleagues. I am in the happy position of saying that I do not think these proceedings will take too long.

Two factors make these proceedings unusual. First, this is a private Member’s Bill, and therefore we will proceed, in time-honoured fashion, without a programme motion, and with our business governed by my groupings and decisions—colleagues should have the selection list in front of them. Secondly, there is no amendment paper as no amendments were tabled. The Questions before us will be whether clauses 1 to 6 and schedules 1 and 2 should stand part of the Bill. Those Questions will be proposed from the Chair and debated, if necessary, in the usual way. If we are not able to complete our consideration today, I will invite the Member in charge to move a sittings motion to enable debate on how the Committee should take its work forward.
