Orders of the Day — Clause 1 — Commencement of section 43 of the criminal justice act 2003 — 25 Jan 2007 at 16:45

I beg to move amendment No. 14, page 1, line 1, leave out clause 1.

As we are coming to the conclusion of the time for debate on this stage of the Bill, I shall be brief. The purpose of the amendment is to delete clause 1 and, in effect, to retain the affirmative resolution procedure as the basis for implementation of the Bill's provisions. I justify that position on two grounds: principle and compliance with assurances given to the House. I begin with the latter point.

Question put, That the amendment be made:-

The House divided: Ayes 185, Noes 283.
