MR SPEAKER: I wish to advise members that this bill is a proposed law to which the Proportional Representation (Hare-Clark) Entrenchment Act 1994 applies, by virtue of section 4 of that act. This bill, therefore, cannot take effect unless it is passed by at least a two-thirds majority of members of the Assembly or by a majority of members of the Assembly and a majority of electors at a referendum. I am sure you would all like to go to that.

Before putting the question that this bill be agreed to, I therefore direct that the bells be rung out and that there be a call of the Assembly, in accordance with standing orders 158 to 162.

Question put:
