Enterprise Bill — New Schedule 1 — Exemptions from Cap on Payments Made in Relation to Leaving Employment — 8 Mar 2016 at 15:30
The majority of MPs voted against exempting a list of public sector bodies from a proposed cap on payments made in relation to leaving employment.
MPs were considering the Enterprise Bill.
The proposed new schedule rejected in this vote was titled: New Schedule 1 — Bodies excluded from the restrictions on public sector exit payments and stated:
- Payments made by the following bodies are excluded from the restrictions on public sector exit payments—
- (a) Sellafield Ltd,
- (b) Westinghouse Springfields Fuels Ltd,
- (c) Magnox Ltd,
- (d) National Nuclear Laboratory,
- (e) International Nuclear Services,
- (f) Atomic Weapons Establishment Ltd,
- (g) Low Level Waste Repository Ltd,
- (h) Dounreay Site Restoration Ltd,
- (i) RSRL Winfrith and
- (j) RSRL Harwell.
An explanatory statement accompanying the rejected new clause stated:
- This new schedule would exclude employees of the listed companies operated by the private sector from the scope of the proposed cap on exit payments.
The rejected new schedule was presumably intended to take effect via the related amendment 16 which stated:
- in clause 41, page 57, line 27, at end insert—
- “(10A) Nothing in this section applies in relation to payments made by the bodies listed in NS1.”.
