Proceeds of Crime Bill

[back to previous text]

Mr. Ainsworth: I beg to move,

    That, in the Programming Order of the Committee of 13 November 2001, paragraph (1) be amended in line 3 by leaving out ''five minutes to Nine o'clock'' and inserting ''a quarter-past Nine o'clock'' and the Table be amended as follows—

    (1) in the second column in respect of the 31st sitting by leaving out the words there printed and inserting ''Clauses 321 to 324, Schedule 6 and Clauses 325 to 329'';

    (2) in the third column in respect of the 31st sitting by leaving out ''7 pm'';

    (3) in the second column in respect of each of the 32nd and 33rd sittings by leaving out ''Part 8'' and inserting ''Clauses 321 to 324, Schedule 6 and Clauses 325 to 329'';

    (4) in the second column in respect of the 34th sitting by leaving out the words there printed and inserting ''Clauses 321 to 324, Schedule 6 and Clauses 325 to 329 (so far as not previously concluded), New Clauses and New Schedules relating to Part 7, Part 8, New Clauses and New Schedules relating to Part 8''.

As you reported to the Committee, Mr. McWilliam, the Programming Sub-Committee met immediately prior to our sitting. The draft motion has been circulated, although it may look a little complicated on paper.

The first part of the motion, at the request of the Opposition, changes the starting time on a Thursday morning from 8.55 to 9.15 for the remainder of the Committee. That cuts our available time by 40 minutes. The Opposition are happy with that, and the Programming Sub-Committee agreed the change unanimously.

The second part of the motion simply removes the knife that we face at 7 pm. That allows our deliberations on part 7 to continue and eat into the time that is allocated for part 8.

Question put and agreed to.

Further consideration adjourned.—[Mrs. McGuire.]

Adjourned accordingly at ten minutes to Seven o'clock till Thursday 24 January at a quarter past Nine o'clock.

Column Number: 1123
