I seek clarification on whether there is any intent to use the regulation-making power under the clause to add or remove items to be registered, or whether the provision is intended to cover reviews in the future if it is thought appropriate to add information or modify requirements to cover circumstances not currently contemplated.

The aim is to ensure that we are in a position to make regulations should we be of a mind to. We have no intention of making these regulations, but it is appropriate to keep this clause in the Bill to enable us to review the provisions at some stage in the future, and keep them up to date.

Question put and agreed to.

Clause 262 ordered to stand part of the Bill.

Clause 263 ordered to stand part of the Bill.

Clause 264
