Civil Partnerships, Marriages and Deaths (Registration Etc.) Bill

Explanatory Notes

Parliamentary approval for financial costs or for charges imposed

37 A money resolution will be needed because regulations under the Bill may increase the sums that will be payable out of money provided by Parliament. Any extension of eligibility for civil partnerships would lead to additional administrative and other costs, for example those of the General Register Office. Coroner services are funded by local authorities and any extension of these services may lead to an increase in the sums paid to those authorities (such as those under section 78 of the Local Government Finance Act 1988).
