Intellectual Property Bill — New Clause 1 — Report on Plans for Future of Intellectual Property — 12 Mar 2014 at 13:45
The majority of MPs voted against requiring a report on the Government’s long term plans for the future of intellectual property in the United Kingdom prior to the introduction of new legislation.
The proposed new clause rejected in this vote was:
- (1) Subordinate legislation to implement the Government’s policy statement entitled “Modernising Copyright”, published in December 2012, may not be brought forward until the Secretary of State has published, and laid before both Houses of Parliament, a report setting out the Government’s long term plans for the future of intellectual property in the United Kingdom
