Motions relating to Delegated Legislation 

Lord Hunt of Kings Heath to move that, in the light of the National Health Service (Mandate Requirements) Regulations 2016, this House regrets that, in setting the budget for NHS England for the next five years, the Government have made wholly unrealistic assumptions about the financial viability of the National Health Service thereby putting patient safety and quality of service at risk (SI 2016/51). 24th Report, Session 2015–16, from the Secondary Legislation Scrutiny Committee
