Order for Second Reading read.

I have to decline to propose the question on this Bill, as it duplicates a new clause proposed to the Social Security Bill and rejected by the House.

On a point of order, Madam Deputy Speaker. If the new clause proposed in the Social Security Bill—which is similar, but not identical to this Bill—was rejected by the House, surely this Bill is in order because it is a separate matter on which the House has not decided because it is not identical to that new clause.

Order. In fact, there is a more significant matter, which is that the Bill has not been moved.
