HC Deb 08 March 1983 vol 38 c787
Mr. Gray

I beg to move amendment No. 14, in page 20, line 7, leave out from beginning to 'do' and insert— '(2) The following provisions of this Act, namely—

  1. (a) Part I (except paragraph 11 of Schedule 1), and
  2. (b) Part I of Schedule 3,'.
This is a minor, consequential amendment which has become necessary because of the inclusion in Committee of clauses 18 and 19 and schedule 1 giving statutory status to the Electricity Consumers Council. The provisions in those clauses and the schedule do not extend to Northern Ireland because the ECC has no locus there. However, paragraph 11 of the schedule amends the House of Commons Disqualification Act 1975, which applies in Northern Ireland. A limited exception is therefore necessary to extend paragraph 11 to Northern Ireland.

I commend the amendment to the House.

Amendment agreed to.
