Ordered that the amendment be divided.

MADAM DEPUTY SPEAKER: We will take the matters from 1(e) through to 2(a) as the first proposed amendment, and then we will take 2(b) as a second proposed amendment. The question is that 1(e) through to 2(a) inclusive be agreed to.

Paragraphs (1)(e) to (2)(a) agreed to.

MADAM DEPUTY SPEAKER: The next question is that amendment 2(b) be agreed to.

Question put:
