With this it will be convenient to discuss the following:

Amendment 22, in clause 10, page 10, line 13, at end insert—

“( ) the expert panel established for the review;”

This amendment, together with Amendment 23, would require the Lord Chancellor to consult the expert panel before the initial discount rate determination, rather than just the subsequent ones as currently required.

Amendment 23, in clause 10, page 10, line 21, at end insert—

“( ) The expert panel must respond to the consultation within the period of 90 days beginning with the day on which its response to the consultation is requested.”
