What these notes do
1 These Explanatory Notes relate to the Commons Amendments to the Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering Bill [HL] as brought from the House of Commons on 2 May 2018.
2 They have been prepared by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office in order to assist the reader of the Bill and the Commons Amendments, and to help inform debate on the Commons Amendments. They do not form part of the Bill and have not been endorsed by Parliament.
3 These Explanatory Notes, like the Commons Amendments themselves, refer to the Bill as first printed for the Commons.
4 They need to be read in conjunction with the Commons Amendments and the text of the Bill. They are not, and are not meant to be, a comprehensive description of the Commons Amendments.
5 All the Commons Amendments referred to in these Explanatory Notes were tabled in the name of the Minister, with the exception of Commons Amendments 22 and 27.
