Identity Documents Bill (Programme) (No. 2)

Volume 515: debated on Wednesday 15 September 2010

I beg to move,

That the Order of 9 June (Identity Documents Bill (Programme)) be varied as follows:

1. Paragraphs 4 and 5 of the Order shall be omitted.

2. Proceedings on consideration and Third Reading shall (so far as not previously concluded) be brought to a conclusion at this day’s sitting at 7.00 pm, or three hours after the commencement of proceedings on the Motion for this Order, whichever is the later.

In the interests of allowing the House full debate, as the Government intend to do, we tabled this programme motion as a precautionary measure in case the previous business took us close to 7 o’clock. Looking at the clock, I suspect that this motion could best be described as otiose, but nevertheless it behoves me to move it.
