Ivory Bill: Analysis of Government on Report

Volume 644: debated on Wednesday 4 July 2018

I have today published a written submission outlining the Government’s analysis of how the English votes for English laws principle relates to all Government amendments tabled for report stage of the Ivory Bill.

The Department’s assessment is that the amendments do not change the territorial application of the Bill.

The analysis holds if all the Government amendments be accepted. I have deposited a copy of the submission in the Libraries of both Houses.
