Select Committee on Delegated Powers and Deregulation Sixteenth Report



FINANCIAL SERVICES AND MARKETS BILL - GOVERNMENT AMENDMENTS FOR THIRD READING

CHILD SUPPORT, PENSIONS AND SOCIAL SECURITY BILL - GOVERNMENT AMENDMENTS FOR COMMITTEE STAGE

SIXTEENTH REPORT


17 MAY 2000


By the Select Committee appointed to report whether the provisions of any bill inappropriately delegate legislative power, or whether they subject the exercise of legislative power to an inappropriate degree of parliamentary scrutiny; to report on documents laid before Parliament under section 3(3) of the Deregulation and Contracting Out Act 1994 and on draft orders laid under section 1(4) of that Act; and to perform, in respect of such documents and orders, the functions performed in respect of other instruments by the Joint Committee on Statutory Instruments.

ORDERED TO REPORT

FINANCIAL SERVICES AND MARKETS BILL - GOVERNMENT AMENDMENTS FOR THIRD READING

1.  The Committee commented on this bill at the pre-legislative scrutiny stage, when it was introduced into this House,[1] and on Committee[2] and report stage[3] amendments. Further Government amendments for Third Reading are discussed in the Treasury's memorandum, printed in Annex 1 to this report. The Committee has considered these amendments and sees no need to comment on any of them.

CHILD SUPPORT, PENSIONS AND SOCIAL SECURITY BILL - GOVERNMENT AMENDMENTS FOR COMMITTEE STAGE

2.  We reported on this bill in our 13th report of this session,[4] when we suggested that the affirmative procedure which applies to two of the powers in clause 61 should be extended to two further powers in that clause. One of the Government's amendments for Committee stage would achieve this, and we welcome that amendment. We see no need to comment on the second amendment referred to in the letter to the Chairman from Baroness Hollis of Heigham, printed in Annex 2 to this report.[5]
