Constitutional Reform and Governance Act 2010 (Ratification of Treaties)

Volume 520: debated on Monday 13 December 2010

Part 2 also requires the Minister, if the “alternative procedure” in clause 23 is being used in exceptional circumstances, to lay a statement giving reasons.

[Official Report, 11 November 2010, Vol. 518, c. 22-23WS.]

Letter of correction from Mr David Lidington:

An error has been identified in the written statement that I made on 11 November 2010. The penultimate paragraph stated:

Part 2 also requires the Minister, if the “alternative procedure” in clause 23 is being used in exceptional circumstances, to lay a statement giving reasons.

The correct statement should have been:

Part 2 also requires the Minister, if the “alternative procedure” in section 22 is being used in exceptional circumstances, to lay a statement giving reasons.
