Government of Wales Bill — Transfer of Ministerial functions — 22 Jul 1998

Ordered,

That the Lords Amendments to the Bill be considered in the following order, namely: No. 125; No. 33; Remaining Amendments (other than Nos. 3, 5 to 12, 14 to 16, 18, 20 to 22, 27, 49 and 82); Nos. 49 and 82; Nos. 3, 5 to 12, 14 to 16, 18 and 20 to 22; No. 27.-- [Mr. Jon Owen Jones.]

Lords amendments considered.

Lords amendment: No. 125, after clause 112, to insert the following new clause-- Welsh Administration Ombudsman --

.--(1) There shall be an office of Welsh Administration Ombudsman or Ombwdsmon Gweinyddiaeth Cymru.

(2) Schedule ( Welsh Administration Ombudsman ) (which makes provision about the Welsh Administration Ombudsman and, in particular, enables him to investigate administrative action taken by the Assembly and certain other public bodies in Wales in response to complaints claiming maladministration) has effect.")

I beg to move, That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said amendment.

Madam Speaker:

With this, it will be convenient to take Lords amendments Nos. 26, 69, 126, 144, 146, 155, 169, 186, 187, 190, 192, 194, 195, 199, 201, 203, 207 and 210.

Lords amendment agreed to.

Lords amendment: No. 33, in page 13, line 25, at end insert--

("( ) Schedule ( Transfer etc. of functions: further provisions ) (which makes further provision about the transfer etc. of functions by Order in Council under this section) has effect.")

I beg to move, That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said amendment.

Madam Speaker:

With this, it will be convenient to discuss Lords amendments Nos. 34 to 36, 45, 54, 151, 157, 158, 161 to 163, 168 and 170.

In other words, the Assembly will not have that function.

Question put, That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said amendment:--

The House divided: Ayes 266, Noes 46.
