(3)   
Paragraphs (4) to (9) apply where a company has an accounting period beginning before 24 March 2011 and ending on or after that date (“the straddling period”).

(8)   
Any reference in the Instalment Payment Regulations to the total liability of a company is, accordingly, to be read—

in their application as a result of paragraph (6)(a), as a reference to the amount that would be the company’s total liability for the straddling period if the amendment made by paragraph (1) had not been made, and
(b)   
in their application as a result of paragraph (6)(b), as a reference to the amount of the supplementary charge on the company for the deemed accounting period under paragraph (7)(a).
(9)   
For the purposes of the Instalment Payment Regulations—
(a)   
a company is to be regarded as a large company as respects the deemed accounting period under paragraph (7)(a) if (and only if) it is a large company for those purposes as respects the straddling period, and
(b)

[No debate]
Mrs Theresa Villiers
 
   That this House takes note of European Union Documents No. 14701/10, draft Decision on the detailed rules for access to the public regulated service offered by the global navigation satellite system established under the Galileo programme, and No. 5530/11, Commission Report on the mid-term review of the European satellite radio navigation programmes; supports the Government’s aim of securing practical, proportionate and enforceable legislation that balances the need for appropriate security controls of manufacturers and users against favourable conditions in which a market for the PRS and associated equipment can grow; and supports the Government’s aim of beginning Galileo services as early as possible, albeit reduced in scope if the programme cannot be delivered within the allocated budget.
To be decided without debate (Standing Order No. 119(11)).
23
MILK AND MILK PRODUCTS
[No debate]
Mr James Paice
 
   That this House takes note of European Union Document No.17582/10, Proposal for a Regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council amending Regulation (EC) No. 1234/2007 as regards contractual relations in the milk and milk products sector; notes the potential for the establishment of producer organisations in the dairy sector to enhance the bargaining power of producers; and supports the Government’s view that greater clarity of existing competition law and what producers may do collectively would better enable rebalancing of negotiating power in the sector rather than the Commission’s proposed exemption from competition law and limits based upon national milk production.
To be decided without debate (Standing Order No. 119(11)).
24
RECOGNITION AND ENFORCEMENT OF JUDGMENTS
[No debate]
Secretary Kenneth Clarke
 
   That this House takes note of European Union Document No. 18101/10 and Addenda 1 and 2, relating to a Draft Regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council on jurisdiction and the recognition and enforcement of judgments in civil and commercial matters; and endorses the Government’s decision about whether to exercise the UK opt-in under Protocol 21 to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union.
To be decided without debate (Standing Order No. 119(11)).
