"( ) Before making—

  1. (a)an order under section 28(2) or (5) of this Act;
  2. (b)an order to which section (Initial experimental period for immobilisation of vehicles)(6) of this Act applies ; or
  3. (c)regulations under section 48(1) of this Act;

Mrs. Chalker

I beg to move, That this House cloth agree with the Lords in the said amendment.

When we discussed consultation in connection with fixed penalties earlier, I was happy to give an undertaking to bring forward an amendment to require the Secretary of State to consult as he sees fit before making orders or regulations. The Government were also happy to accept an amendment in another place requiring consultation about the experimental use of wheel clamps.

Lords amendment agreed to.

Lords amendment No. 93 agreed to.
