Lords Amendment — 11 May 2004 at 14:30

Baroness Blackstone voted with the majority (Not-Content).

1 Before Clause 1, insert the following new Clause-

"Application of Part 1

Part 1 shall apply only if an elected assembly for the region has been established."

The Commons disagree to this amendment for the following reason-

1A Because it is not appropriate to restrict the application of a regional spatial strategy only to regions which have elected assemblies.

The Lords insist on their Amendment No. 1 to which the Commons have disagreed, for the following reason-

1B Because responsibility for drawing up regional spatial strategies should lie with the elected representatives of the communities affected.

The Commons insist on their disagreement to Lords Amendment No. 1 but propose the following amendment to the Bill in lieu thereof-

1C Page 2, line 7, at end insert-

'(2A) The Secretary of State must not give a direction under subsection (1) in relation to a body unless not less than 60% of the persons who are members of the body fall within subsection (2B).

(2B) A person falls within this subsection if he is a member of any of the following councils or authorities and any part of the area of the council or authority (as the case may be) falls within the region to which the direction (if given) will relate-

(a) a district council;

(b) a county council;

(c) a metropolitan district council;

(d) a National Park authority;

(e) the Broads authority.'

rose to move Amendment No. 1D, as an amendment to the Motion that this House do not insist on its Amendment No. 1, in respect of which the Commons have insisted on their disagreement, but do agree with the Commons in their Amendment No. 1C in lieu thereof, leave out from "House" to end and insert "do insist on its Amendment No. 1, and do disagree with the Commons in their Amendment No. 1C in lieu thereof".

On Question, Whether the said amendment (No. 1D) shall be agreed to?

Their Lordships divided: Contents, 44; Not-Contents, 141.
