Ivory Bill: Lords Amendments and EVEL

Volume 650: debated on Tuesday 27 November 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 Lords amendments to 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 Lords amendments be accepted.

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