Amendment made: 14, page 30, line 3, leave out subsection (7) and insert—

‘(7) No order may be made under subsection (5) unless a draft of the statutory instrument containing it has been laid before, and approved by a resolution of, each House of Parliament.’.—(Jenny Willott.)

Clause 48(5) gives the Secretary of State power to remove specified services from the application of Chapter 4 of Part 1 by order made by statutory instrument. This amendment changes the Parliamentary procedure for such statutory instruments from the negative resolution procedure to the affirmative resolution procedure.
