The clause deals with the short title, commencement and extent. As the immediate effect of the Bill is to place obligations on the Secretary of Sate, and given the deadline for publication of the report, we consider that the Act should commence upon Royal Assent, rather than waiting the customary two months.

Question put and agreed to.

Clause 6 accordingly ordered to stand part of the Bill.
