Procedure Committee

Volume 689: debated on Wednesday 7 February 2007

rose to move, That the first report from the Select Committee be agreed to, except for paragraph 8 (HL Paper 15).

The noble Lord said: My Lords, I should explain briefly why we wish to leave out paragraph 8 of the first report. This paragraph deals with the scrutiny of regulatory reform orders and followed proposals on the issue from the Government. It has, however, been overtaken by a report from the Commons Select Committee on Regulatory Reform, which recommended something slightly different. The Government have agreed with that committee. The matter will therefore come back to the House once the Commons’ position is clear. I beg to move.

Moved, That the first report from the Select Committee be agreed to, except for paragraph 8 (HL Paper 15).—(The Chairman of Committees.)

On Question, Motion agreed to.
