Commonwealth Development Corporation Bill [Lords] — Investment policy — 14 Jul 1999

As amended in the Standing Committee, considered.

(2) The Secretary of State shall as soon as practicable lay a report under subsection (1) before Parliament.'.-- [Mr. Streeter.]

Brought up, and read the First time.

I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time.

Mr. Deputy Speaker (Mr. Michael J. Martin):

With this, it will be convenient to discuss amendment No. 1, in clause 18, page 8, line 23, leave out from 'association' to 'unless' in line 24 and insert

That is a very welcome statement. No doubt, the company's annual report will contain information about the investment policy and whether the directors are complying with it. We welcome all that, but it merely points us towards the investment policy, which I shall consider in a moment.

Question put , That the clause be read a Second time:--

The House divided: Ayes 165, Noes 309.
