I beg to move amendment 35, in clause 107, page 64, line 15, after ‘passed,’ insert ‘including an enactment contained in this Act,’.

This minor, technical amendment has been tabled to correct a drafting omission. Clause 107 enables the Secretary of State to make regulations making

“consequential, transitional, transitory or saving provision in relation to any provision” of the Bill, and subsection (2) provides:

“The regulations may, in particular amend, repeal, revoke or otherwise modify legislation.”

“Legislation” is defined in subsection (5), and the Bill currently does not fall within the definition. The amendment would rectify that and I hope hon. Members will accept it.

Amendment 35 agreed to.

Clause 107, as amended, ordered to stand part of the Bill.

Clauses 108 to 112 ordered to stand part of the Bill.

Order. It is extremely likely that the Committee will exit this afternoon, under the chairmanship of Mrs Riordan, so I thank everyone very much for the co-operation and courtesy they have shown each other during sittings. I trust that this afternoon’s sitting will run equally smoothly.

Ordered, That further consideration be now adjourned. —(Bill Wiggin.)

Adjourned till this day at Four o’clock.
