A2         

In section 99 (duration of licences of drivers of motor vehicles of classes other

(i)    

of not more than ten years and not less than one year,

 

ending on or before the seventieth anniversary of the

 

applicant’s date of birth, or

Schedule  12,  page  136,  line  29,  after ‘subsection (1)’ insert ‘(like the power in

 

subsection (1) of section one of this Act)’.

 

Member’s explanatory statement

 

The amendment equates the Bill’s existing amendment to the Destructive Imported Animals Act

Member’s explanatory statement

 

Following a DEFRA consultation (undertaken with the Scottish and Welsh Governments), this

requirement for the Secretary of State to consult the Scottish Ministers before making an

 

appointment.

to the Secretary of State.
