("(2) Any statutory instrument containing such regulations as aforesaid shall be subject to annulment in pursuance of a resolution of either House of Parliament.")
§ THE EARL OF SELKIRK
My Lords, this Amendment makes the regulations which the Secretary of State will make, both in regard to safety and in regard to the health and welfare of children, subject to the Negative Resolution procedure of Parliament. I beg to move that this House do agree with the Commons in the said Amendment.
§ Moved, That this House do agree with the Commons in the said Amendment.—(The Earl of Selkirk.)
§ LORD LUCAS OF CHILWORTH
My Lords, we have no objection to this Amendment. In fact, if it would expedite the business of your Lordships' House, I can inform the noble Earl that we have no objection to any of the other Amendments except that under Clause 5 at page 3, line 35. That Amendment appears to me substantially to alter subsection (3) of Clause 5. If the noble Earl would be kind enough, when he comes to that Amendment, to give your Lordships some explanation, I feel sure that that will be satisfactory.
§ On Question, Motion agreed to.
