haulage permits and trailer registration Bill [HL]

Explanatory Notes

Parliamentary approval for financial costs or for charges imposed

68 The additional expenditure arising from the Bill is subject to a money resolution. Parliament will be asked to agree that any expenditure arising from this Bill (should it become an Act) incurred by the Secretary of State will be taken out of money supplied by Parliament. There is potential expenditure by the Secretary of State in relation to the grant of international road haulage permits and in relation to trailer registration etc. The provisions of the bill may also lead to increases in public expenditure under other Acts, in particular under the Road Traffic Act 1988, section 84 of which provides for payments to the examiners who will exercise functions under clauses 6, 7 and 14. The money resolution will also cover this increase in expenditure.

69 A ways and means resolution is not required for the Bill. (A ways and means resolution is required where a bill authorises new charges on the people – broadly speaking, new taxation or other similar charges.)
