Vocational Education (Primary Education) Bill 2008: First Stage.

I move:

That leave be granted to introduce a Bill entitled an Act to enable the conferral on the vocational education committees of functions in relation to the establishment and maintenance of primary schools; for that purpose to amend the Vocational Education (Amendment) Act 2001 and to provide for connected matters.

Is the Bill being 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.
Sitting suspended at 3.35 p.m. and resumed at 3.45 p.m.
