New Clause 8 - Power to increase length of trial period

Daylight Saving Bill – in a Public Bill Committee at 4:15 pm on 7th December 2011.

Alert me about debates like this

‘(1) The Secretary of State may by order amend section [The trial period](1)(b) (end of trial period) so as to substitute a later relevant time for that for the time being specified in that provision.

(2) No order under this section may be made—

(a) before the day on which the report is published, or

(b) once a daylight saving order has been made, after the day six months before that on which the trial period would otherwise end.

(3) Before making an order under this section the Secretary of State must consult each of the appropriate national authorities.

(4) An order under this section is subject to affirmative resolution procedure.’.—(Mr Davey.)

Brought up, read the First and Second time, and added to the Bill.
