Business without Debate

Volume 616: debated on Monday 31 October 2016

Delegated Legislation

Motion made, and Question put forthwith (Standing Order No. 118(6)),

Terrorism Prevention and Investigation

That the draft Terrorism Prevention and Investigation Measures Act 2011 (Continuation) Order 2016, which was laid before this House on 4 July, be approved.—(Christopher Pincher.)

Question agreed to.


We now come to motions 5 and 6, which relate to new Committees of the House. I suggest that they be taken together.

That Liam Byrne, James Cleverly, Mr Nigel Evans, Marcus Fysh, Mr Ranil Jayawardena, Sir Edward Leigh, Chris Leslie, Shabana Mahmood, Toby Perkins and Sir Desmond Swayne be members of the International Trade Committee.—(Bill Wiggin, on behalf of the Committee of Selection.)

We now come to motions 7 to 25. I understand that there is a wish to take motion 18 on the Justice Committee separately. With the leave of the House, we will therefore take motions 7 to 17 together.
