Alert me about debates like this

Amendment made: 26, page 33, line 2, leave out

“the day on which this Act is passed” and insert “16 March 2020” .—(Penny Mordaunt.)

This amendment would extend the period in relation to which regulations under the clause may be made, so that the regulations can reschedule elections and referendums that were required to have been held on or after 16 March 2020 (rather than on or after the day on which the Act is passed).

Clause 58, as amended, ordered to stand part of the Bill.

Clause 59 ordered to stand part of the Bill.
