European Union (Finance) Bill — Clause 2 — Timetable for Implementation of New Arrangements for Funding the European Union — 23 Jun 2015 at 15:15
John Penrose MP, Weston-Super-Mare voted to make new arrangements for funding the European Union come into force two months after the European Union (Finance) Bill becomes law.
The majority of MPs voted to make new arrangements for funding the European Union come into force two months after the European Union (Finance) Bill becomes law.
The amendment rejected in this vote was:
- Amendment 1, page 1, line 18, leave out subsection (3).
Clause 2 subsection (3) referred to states:
- This Act comes into force at the end of the period of 2 months beginning with the day on which it is passed.
An explanatory note accompanying the amendment stated:
- This amendment removes the automatic coming into force of the Act two months after it is passed, which would be incompatible with any of the new Clauses.
New clause one which was agreed without objection prior to this vote included a sub-clause stating:
- This Act shall come into force on such day as the Treasury shall by order specify.
The European Union (Finance) Bill seeks to give effect to the new Own Resources Decision of the European Union (EU Council Decision of 26 May 2014: 2014/335/EU, Euratom), amending the arrangements for the financing of the annual budget of the EU.
