(1B) The Code may make different provision for different cases."
Leave out Clause 11
The Commons disagree to Lords Amendments Nos. 12, 13, 15, 20, 67 to 70 and 72 for the following Reason and propose Amendments Nos. 15B and 15C to Clause 11 -
Because the rules and principles relating to pre-release access are more appropriately provided for by order made by Ministers or the devolved administrations, subject to scrutiny by affirmative resolution procedure, than by the Statistics Board.
