Legislative and Regulatory Reform Bill — New Clause "5" — Laying a rejected order — 16 May 2006 at 20:00
John Prescott MP, Kingston upon Hull East did not vote.
Where within the period set out in section 13 either House of Parliament resolves that the content of an order is inappropriate for provision to be made under "New Clause 19", there shall be no further proceedings in respect [of this order], and [no] order which has the same or similar effect to [this] one... may... be laid... [before Parliament] within the subsequent two-year period.
This would have prevented the government from re-submitting an order over and over again to Parliament until it got it past a veto. In other words, once an order had been rejected, the change in the law would no longer be a candidate for this fast-track procedure, and must be submitted through the usual Parliamentary process.
