That the draft order laid before the House on 29 October be approved.

Amendment to the Motion

Moved by Lord Bach

As an amendment to the above Motion, leave out from "that" to the end and insert "this House declines to approve the draft Order laid before the House on 29 October as it does not fulfil the undertaking given by Her Majesty's Government on 17 April; and will mean claimants, including a disproportionate number of disabled people, will not receive legal help on a point of law in first-tier tribunals relating to welfare benefits thus denying them a fair hearing on point of law cases".
