High Speed Rail (London-West Midlands) Bill – in a Public Bill Committee at 2:45 pm on 3rd March 2016.
Alert me about debates like this
Question proposed, That the clause stand part of the Bill.
The clause is a standard one that appears in Bills. The provisions of the Bill will come into force on Royal Assent, except for clause 11 and schedule 14, which will come into force under regulations made by the Secretary of State after the Housing and Planning Bill comes into force.
I thought that the Minister might propose to the Committee that the name be changed to the Elizabeth II line. I am disappointed that it will stay so boring and business-like, but be that as it may.
Question put and agreed to.
Clause 68 accordingly ordered to stand part of the Bill.
Ordered, That further consideration be now adjourned. —(Jackie Doyle-Price.)
Adjourned till Tuesday 8 March at twenty-five minutes past Nine o’clock.
