I beg to move amendment 17, in clause 30, page 22, line 2, at end insert—

“(4) The Welsh Ministers may by regulations define ‘building’ for the purposes of this section.

(5) The regulations may in particular provide that ‘building’ includes—

(a) any other structure or erection of any kind (whether temporary or permanent);

(b) any vehicle, vessel or other movable object of any kind, in such circumstances as may be specified.”

This amendment enables the Welsh Ministers to define “building” for the purposes of section 120I of the Building Act 1984 (inserted by this clause).
