I move amendment No. 16:

In page 23, after line 46, to insert the following subsection:"(4) Each House shall make rules and standing orders to provide that a vote in favour of the conducting of an inquiry shall pass if no less than two thirds of the designated opposition Deputies vote in favour of the conducting of the inquiry by a committee.".
This was tabled by Deputy Thomas Pringle. It is essentially a different version of the same point.
