Ivory Bill: English Votes for English Laws - Analysis of Government Amendments for Report Stage

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 the House.

This statement has also been made in the House of Lords: HLWS799
