Local Government (Household Charge) Act 2011: First Stage

I move:

That leave be granted to introduce a Bill entitled an Act to amend the Local Government (Household Charge) Act 2011 by extending the date for payment of the household charge in the year 2012 to 30 September 2012 and by expressly excluding the private residences of any Government Ministers from the exemptions provided under the 2011 Act.

Is the Bill opposed?

Question put and agreed to.

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.
