‘(5) For the purposes of subsection (4), a pipe-line is a nationally significant pipe-line if—
(a) development consent is required, and has been granted, for its construction, or
(b) its construction has been authorised by a pipe-line construction authorisation under section 1(1) of the Pipe-lines Act 1962.’.
With this it will be convenient to discuss Government amendments Nos. 148 to 150.
The amendments make minor changes to the pipeline aspects of the Bill and ensure that the infrastructure planning commission can consider proposals for a diversion to an existing pipeline if that pipeline is authorised under previous legislation. I commend them to the Committee.
