(b) Rule 6.3A.2 be suspended;
(c) in Rule 6.3A.4 the first sentence be suspended;
(d) after Rule 6.3A.5(d) the words “(e) a political party withdraws in writing to the Bureau that nomination of the member or members nominated for the purposes of committee meetings up to 11 February 2022.” be inserted; and
(e) in Rule 12.1.15 the words “(other than a committee substitute)” be omitted in both instances where they occur.
That the Parliament agrees that Temporary Standing Orders Rule 3 be amended—
