Select Committee on Delegated Powers and Regulatory Reform Twenty-First Report


AVIATION (OFFENCES) BILL

INTRODUCTION

27.  This is a private member's bill brought from the House of Commons. The Department for Transport has provided a memorandum on the delegated power in the bill for the Committee. The memorandum is printed at Annex 6 to this Report. Clause 2 of the bill raises from 2 years to 5 years the maximum penalty for which regulations may provide for an offence involving endangering an aircraft or a person in an aircraft. The Committee considers that this is acceptable.

CONCLUSION

28.  There is nothing in the delegated powers in the bill to which the Committee wishes to draw the attention of the House.
