6 The Bill extends to England and Wales but applies to England only. There are no minor or consequential effects outside England and a legislative consent motion is not required.

7 The matters to which the provisions of the Bill relate would be within the legislative competence of the Northern Ireland Assembly if corresponding provisions in relation to Northern Ireland were included in an Act of the Northern Ireland Assembly as a transferred matter. They would be within the legislative competence of the Scottish Parliament if corresponding provisions in relation to Scotland were included in an Act of the Scottish Parliament, and within the legislative competence of the National Assembly for Wales if corresponding provisions in relation to Wales were included in an Act of the National Assembly of Wales.
