Civil Liability Bill

Volume 647: debated on Wednesday 17 October 2018

I have today published a written submission outlining the Government’s analysis of how the English votes for English laws principle in accordance with the application of Standing Order 83L relates to the Government amendment tabled for Commons Report stage of the Civil Liability Bill.

The Department’s assessment is that the amendment does not change the territorial application of the Bill. The analysis holds if the Government amendment is accepted.

I have deposited a copy of the submission in the Libraries of both Houses.
