§ The Earl of Northesk
asked Her Majesty's Government:
How many amendments they tabled to the Financial Services and Markets Bill (a) in Committee in the House of Commons; (b) at Report stage in the House of Commons; (c) in Committee in the House of Lords; (d) at Report stage in the House of Lords; and (e) in total. [HL2422]
§ Lord McIntosh of Haringey
The number of amendments tabled by the Government is as follows: (a) 437; (b) 327; (c) 252; (d) 280; (e) 1,468.
The tabling of a large number of amendments is to be expected with a Bill of this size and complexity (over 430 clauses and 22 schedules). A further 1,297 non-Government amendments have been tabled by others during the passage of the Bill.
