Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill

Explanatory Notes

Parliamentary approval for financial costs or for charges imposed

246 A Money resolution is needed in relation to Clause 20 of the Bill, which broadens the types of cover available under the Government backed terrorism reinsurance scheme provided for in the Reinsurance (Acts of Terrorism) Act 1993. The House of Commons agreed, on 11 June 2018, that any expenditure arising from this clause of the Bill (should it become an Act) incurred by the Treasury will be taken out of money provided by Parliament.

247 A Ways and Means resolution is needed to authorise the power to impose fees under Clause 15 of the Bill in relation to traffic regulation orders or notices that are made for the purpose of protecting certain sites or events from risks associated with terrorism. The Ways and Means resolution was also agreed by the House of Commons on 11 June 2018.
