Select Committee on Delegated Powers and Deregulation Thirty-Second Report


26.  Although it has not in the past been the practice of this Committee to report on amendments, our terms of reference clearly permit us to do so. In general we would expect Government Departments to alert us in good time to any amendments of substance containing delegated powers. If time allows the Committee is willing to report on amendments when, as in the two instances covered by this Report, the amendments raise matters of considerable importance.[7]
