Alert me about debates like this

The amendment enables consequential amendments to be made to UK-wide legislation (even though the substantive changes to the law will relate to England and Wales only).—(Tim Loughton.)

I beg to move amendment 10, in clause 5, page 3, line 14, leave out subsections (2) and (3) and insert—

‘( ) This Act comes into force at the end of the period of two months beginning with the day on which it is passed.”

The amendment provides for the Bill to come into force two months after it receives Royal Assent.

With this it will be convenient to discuss clause stand part.

This is just the fiddly bit at the end of the Bill, which I am sure hon. Members will not want to be detained much longer on. The amendment deals with the extent, commencement and short title. It comes into force when the Secretary of State decides and is tied down to two months after the Act is passed. The rest of the clause is absolutely self-explanatory. I therefore propose that the clause stand part of the Bill and I hope that the amendment is accepted by the Committee. I am sure no one will argue with that.

Clause 5, as amended, ordered to stand part of the Bill.
