HL Deb 04 November 1993 vol 549 c1165

Subsection (5), line 1, leave out from ("shall") to end of paragraph (a) and insert ("only make a determination under subsection (4) if a transfer of services to the private sector would not significantly increase the cost to the Franchising Director of providing the service and if he considers that it is necessary to make such a determination to facilitate such a transfer and—").

The Commons disagreed to the above amendments for the following reason:

Because the Commons do not consider it appropriate for a determination of the kind in question to be made later than the time at which the Franchising Director issues invitations to tender in respect of the services to which the determination relates.
