Sexual Offences (Age of Consent) (Temporary Provisions) Bill 2006: First Stage.

I move:

That leave be granted to introduce a Bill entitled an Act to re-enact certain enactments relating to sexual acts with persons who have not attained a stated age, to provide for a defence to offences under those enactments, and to provide for connected matters.

Is the Bill opposed?

Question put and agreed.

Since this is a Private Members' Bill, Second Stage must, under Standing Orders, be taken in Private Members' time.

I move: "That the Bill be taken in Private Members' time."

Question put and agreed to.
