Public Bodies Bill — Schedule 1 — Power to Abolish Youth Justice Board for England and Wales — 25 Oct 2011 at 19:46
The majority of MPs voted to give a minister the power to abolish the Youth Justice Board for England and Wales.
MPs were considering the Public Bodies Bill. The amendment rejected in this vote was:
- Amendment proposed: 33, page 22, line 17, leave out ‘Youth Justice Board for England and Wales.’.
Had it not been rejected this amendment would have removed the ‘Youth Justice Board for England and Wales' from Schedule 1 to the Public Bodies Bill. Clause 1 of the Bill, in subclause 1 stated:
- A Minister may by order abolish a body or office specified in Schedule 1.
