‘(5) For the purposes of subsection (4), a pipe-line is a nationally significant pipe-line if—
(a) development consent is required, and has been granted, for its construction, or
(b) its construction has been authorised by a pipe-line construction authorisation under section 1(1) of the Pipe-lines Act 1962.’.
The amendments make minor changes to the pipeline aspects of the Bill and ensure that the infrastructure planning commission can consider proposals for a diversion to an existing pipeline if that pipeline is authorised under previous legislation. I commend them to the Committee.
