Bus Services Bill: English votes for English laws

Analysis of English votes for English laws in relation to government amendments made at report stage to the Bus Services Bill.

Andrew Jones MP

I am pleased to announce the publication of analysis of English votes for English laws in relation to government amendments made at report stage to the Bus Services Bill.

The English votes for English laws process applies to public bills in the House of Commons. To support the process, the government has agreed that it will provide information to assist the Speaker in considering whether to certify that Bill or any of its provisions for the purposes of English votes for English laws. Bill provisions that relate exclusively to England or to England and Wales, and which have a subject matter within the legislative competence of one or more of the devolved legislatures, can be certified.

This analysis reflects the position should all the government amendments be accepted.

The memorandum can be found on the Bill documents page of the Parliament website and I have deposited a copy in the Libraries of the House.
