    (b)  that a report shall have been received either from a Select Committee of each House of Parliament, or from a Joint Select Committee of both Houses of Parliament, as to whether such provision would be required and the burden would be proportionate to the benefit, whether such a provision would be appropriate in all the circumstances; and if so whether the Order should be subject to any sunset provision;
    (c)  that both Houses of Parliament shall have debated, and approved the making of such order as laid in draft, or (if so advised) as amended.
