European Union (Withdrawal) Bill

Volume 790: debated on Wednesday 25 April 2018

Order of Consideration Motion

Moved by

That the order of the House of 16 April be vacated, and that amendments for the Report stage be marshalled and considered in the following order:

Clauses 1 to 5, Schedule 1, Clauses 6 to 9, Clause 16, Clause 17, Clause 10, Schedule 2, Clause 11, Schedule 3, Clause 14, Schedule 6, Clause 15, Clause 12, Schedule 4, Clause 13, Schedule 5, Clauses 18 and 19, Schedule 7, 8 and 9, Title.

My Lords, I beg to move the Motion standing in the name of my noble friend Lord Callanan on the Order Paper. In doing so, I would like to explain the need for a revised Order of Consideration Motion. Noble Lords will be aware that the Government have been working with the devolved Administrations on amendments to Clause 11. To ensure that the House can consider the amendments in good order and to allow the amendments to be tabled a week before the debate, this Motion moves Schedule 7 to ensure that any consequential amendments to the schedules can be considered alongside the relevant clauses.

Motion agreed.
