§ Mr. Fox
The amendments are necessary to correct drafting flaws in two Opposition amendments that were accepted in Committee. The intention behind the Opposition amendments was to prevent any orders made under clause 120 coming into force before being approved by both Houses, but the wording, without the further amendments, would not have that effect. The Government amendments follow a promise that we made.
§ Amendment agreed to.
Amendments made: No. 322, in page 90, line 18 leave out
'subject to approval by both Houses of Parliament'.
§ No. 323, in page 90, line 41, at end add—
- '(6) An order under this section shall be made by statutory instrument.
- (7) No order under this section shall have effect until approved by a resolution of each House of Parliament.'.—[Mr. Fox.]
