With this it will be convenient to consider new clause 5—Duration of sections 20 to 39—

‘(1) Sections 20 to 39 shall expire at the end of the period of12 months beginning with the day on which this Act is passed.

(2) The Secretary of State may, by order made by statutory instrument—

(a) repeal sections 20 to 39; or

(b) provide that those sections are not to expire at the time when they would otherwise expire under subsection (1) or in accordance with an order under this subsection but are to continue in force after that time for a period not exceeding 12 months.

(3) No order may be made under this section unless a draft of it has been laid before Parliament and approved by a resolution of each House.’.
