I beg to move, in page 2, line 33, at the end, to insert:

"(6) The Board shall, as soon as possible after the end of each financial year of the Board, make to the Ministers a report on the exercise and performance by them of their functions under this Act during that year; and the Ministers shall lay a copy of every such report before each House of Parliament.
This and the next two Amendments are submitted in compliance with an undertaking which I gave in the Standing Committee to insert these words. They are self-explanatory, and I shall not detain the House by offering any further explanation.

I would like to say that we on this side of the House are obliged to the right hon. Gentleman for his consideration.

Amendment agreed to.
