Insert the following new Clause-

"Post-legislative scrutiny

Four years after the passing of this Act the Secretary of State shall arrange for post-legislative scrutiny of this Act to check on its operation and may arrange subsequent scrutiny."
The Commons disagree to Lords Amendment No. 28 for the following Reason-
Because the Commons consider that imposing an obligation on the Secretary of State to arrange for post-legislative scrutiny is unnecessary.
