Public Bill Committee

Wednesday 6 May 2009

[Mr. Roger Gale in the Chair]

Autism Bill

2.30 pm
The Chairman: Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen. Before we proceed, it is my duty to inform the Committee that on the Votes and Proceedings of the House of Tuesday 5 May 2009 the money resolution was approved, and therefore all matters pertaining to the Bill are now debatable.
Mrs. Cheryl Gillan (Chesham and Amersham) (Con): On a point of order, Mr. Gale. I beg to move,
That further consideration of the Bill be now adjourned for a second time.
The Bill is of great importance to a large number of people and their families throughout the country, and I am very grateful for cross-party support, and to everyone on the Committee for turning out today. I hope that they will bear with us, because I hope to bring back, with the assistance of Ministers, something that we can all discuss again and that the Government may feel able to accept. That is possibly a worthwhile route to chart for the Bill, so I ask for further consideration to be adjourned until next Wednesday.
The Chairman: I am prepared to accept the hon. Lady’s motion.
Question put and agreed to.
2.31 pm
Adjourned till Wednesday 13 May at half-past Two o’clock.
