moved Amendment No. 191M:

After Clause 109, insert the following new clause—


(1) This section applies where the Department of Enterprise, Trade and Investment in Northern Ireland amends the provisions of Part 7 of the 2003 Order (renewables obligations for Northern Ireland suppliers) by way of an amending order to take account of amendments of the 1989 Act made by this Chapter.

(2) In the case of a renewables order containing provision made by virtue of the amending order, the requirements of Article 52(6) of the 2003 Order (consultation before making a renewables order) may be satisfied by consultation that took place wholly or partly before the amending order came into force (including consultation taking place before the commencement of this section).

(3) In this section—

"amending order" means an order under Article 56 of the 2003 Order;

"the 2003 Order" means the Energy (Northern Ireland) Order 2003 (S.I. 2003/419 (N.I. 6));

"renewables order" means an order under Article 52 of the 2003 Order.

(4) This section extends to Northern Ireland only."
