The Committee met at quarter to four.
[The Deputy Chairman of Committees (Baroness McIntosh of Hudnall) in the Chair.]
Before the Committee begins its proceedings, I remind Members that, in the event of a Division in the Chamber, the Committee will adjourn for 10 minutes from the sound of the Division Bell. Before the Minister moves that the first statutory instrument be considered, I remind noble Lords that in the case of each statutory instrument the Motion before the Committee will be that the Committee do consider the instrument in question. The Motion to approve the instrument will be moved in the Chamber in the usual way.
