The Special Public Bill Committee on the Special Public Bill Committee on the Sentencing (Pre-consolidation Amendments) Bill [HL] has issued a call for evidence on the Sentencing (Pre-consolidation Amendments) Bill [HL]
The House of Lords has established a Special Public Bill Committee on the Sentencing (Pre-consolidation Amendments) Bill.The long title of the Bill is “to give effect to Law Commission recommendations relating to commencement of enactments relating to sentencing law and to make provision for pre-consolidation amendments of sentencing law.”
Special Public Bill Committees are empowered to take written and oral evidence on a Bill before considering it. The Committee would therefore welcome your views on the provisions contained within the Bill, and any other matters that would be considered to be relevant to the subject matter as defined by the long title.
The Committee have seen the November 2018 report of the Law Commission on these matters (Law Com No 382) and so references may be made in your evidence to that report. The Committee will be considering legislation in this field in general terms and, as such, will not be investigating individual cases.
The deadline to submit written evidence is 2 July 2019.
