Supplementary Order Paper

Wednesday, 15 March 2017

Intelligence and Security Bill

Proposed amendments

Andrew Little, in Committee, to move the following amendments:

Clause 156

In clause 156(1)(b) (page 116, line 24), replace “7” with “9”.

In clause 156(4) (page 116, line 37), replace “6 or 7” with “more than 5”.

In clause 156(4)(a) (page 116, line 38), replace “2” with “2 or 3”.

Explanatory note

This Supplementary Order Paper increases the maximum size of the Intelligence and Security Committee from 7 to 9. As clause 156 is currently drafted it does not provide for proportional representation of all political parties of a reasonable size. This amendment addresses that by increasing the maximum size of the committee.
