Planning and Compulsory Purchase Bill
Lord Bassam of Brighton (Government Whip (technically a Lord in Waiting, HM Household); Labour)
My Lords, I can be extremely brief here, because again this is an issue on which we had extensive discussions at an earlier stage. This group of amendments creates a number of additional express duties to give reasons that will rest with the Secretary of State or the National Assembly for Wales. These commitments have now been matched.
I could go through each amendment, but I do not think that there is much point in doing that because they are almost standard in their effect. They simply place requirements on the Secretary of State to give reasons. I beg to move.
