Lord Roberts of Conwy: With regard to Amendment No. 476B, I am grateful for the Minister's reassurance that companies will not be required to remove their electricity lines or plant in the vicinity of SSSIs or place them under ground. I am sure that I speak for my noble friend Lady Wilcox when I say that she too is grateful for the reassurance that she received that the Minister would reconsider the 28-day period. In view of that reassurance I shall not press the amendment. I beg leave to withdraw the amendment.

Amendment, by leave, withdrawn.

[Amendment No. 477 not moved.]

Lord McIntosh of Haringey: I beg to move that the House do now resume.

Moved accordingly, and, on Question, Motion agreed to.

House resumed.
