Identity Documents Bill

Volume 520: debated on Tuesday 14 December 2010

Consideration of Lords amendment

I must draw the House’s attention to the fact that financial privilege is involved in the Lords amendment. Having given careful consideration to the amendment, Mr Speaker is satisfied that it would impose a charge on the public revenue that is not authorised by a resolution of this House. The amendment is therefore deemed to be disagreed to, and is not available for debate, in accordance with Standing Order No. 78(3).

Ordered, That a Committee be appointed to draw up Reasons to be assigned to the Lords for disagreeing to their amendment;

That Damian Green, James Duddridge, Mr Gerry Sutcliffe, Mark Tami and Dr Julian Huppert be members of the Committee;

That Damian Green be the Chair of the Committee;

That three be the quorum of the Committee.

That the Committee do withdraw immediately.—(James Duddridge.)

Committee to withdraw immediately; reasons to be reported and communicated to the Lords.
