Deposit of duplicate plans, &c., in Private Bill Office

239A. If under a special procedure order it is proposed to authorise the compulsory acquisition or use of land, or if the order relates to any works or to any area of land or water, and the said works or area are described by reference to a map or plan, a copy of a map or plan of the said land or works or area shall be deposited in the Private Bill Office on the day on which the order is laid before this House.

The object of these Amendments is to clarify the Standing Orders relating to Private Business, and in some cases to bring them up to date. In particular, the new Standing Order 239A improves upon the repealed Standing Order 239A in that it ensures that, wherever necessary, maps or plans illustrating Special Procedure Orders shall be available for the use of Members from the day on which such an Order is laid before the House.

Question put, and agreed to.
