Statutory Instruments, &c.
LIST NO. 31 : Friday 21 April 2017

SECTION B

Treaties subject to negative resolution procedure

Some treaties are subject to negative procedure before they are ratified. Section 20 of the Constitutional Reform and Governance Act provides for a period of 21 sitting days (days on which both Houses sit), beginning with the sitting day after a copy of the treaty is laid before Parliament, within which either House may resolve that the treaty should not be ratified. There are provisions for the period to be extended and, if either House resolves that the treaty should not be ratified, a Minister may lay a statement indicating that he or she is of the opinion that the treaty should nevertheless be ratified (and why). If such a statement follows a resolution of the House of Commons that the treaty should not be ratified, this triggers a further 21-day period during which the House of Commons may come to the same resolution again.
