Powers and duties of Lord in the Chair

29.36The powers and duties of the Lord in the Chair are the same as those of the Lord on the Woolsack when the House is sitting. They are generally confined to the calling on of clauses, schedules and amendments in bills referred to the Committee, and putting the questions on them. The Lord in the Chair also makes the formal report of the Committee to the House. The Lord in the Chair may vote but does not have a casting vote.
