Local Transport Bill [HL]
Lord Bradshaw (Spokesperson in the Lords, Transport; Liberal Democrat)
My Lords, I have spoken to this amendment with Amendment No. 159. I believe that the Minister has exaggerated the extent of the delay because there is a certain parallel movement in these procedures. In fact, it could be possible to accommodate our hybrid instruments procedure within the 12-month timeframe that the Government contemplate will be needed between the publication of the ITA governance review scheme by an ITA or local authority, and the making of the resulting ITA order by the Secretary of State. I beg to move.
