Clause 44 — Interpretation

Infrastructure Bill [Lords] – in the House of Commons at 5:30 pm on 26 January 2015.

Alert me about debates like this

Amendments made: 89, page 49, line 4, leave out from “area”” to end of line 6 and insert

“means those parts of the landward area (within the meaning of the Petroleum Licensing (Exploration and Production) (Landward Areas) Regulations 2014) that are in England and Wales or are beneath waters (other than waters adjacent to Scotland);”

This amendment, which secures that the right of use is only exercisable in those parts of the “landward area” which are in England and Wales or the adjacent waters, is consequential on amendments 96 to 99 (under which the right of use will not be exercisable in Scotland).

Amendment 90, page 49, line 16, leave out from beginning to end of line 17—(Amber Rudd.)

This amendment removes the definition of the expression “Scottish deep-level land”, as the expression is only used in clause 39(5) (which amendment 86 removes).
