Twenty-Sixth Report of Session 2019-21 Contents

Appendix 2

S.I. 2020/1029

Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (No. 2) (England) (Amendment) (No. 5) Regulations 2020

1.The Committee has asked the Department of Health and Social Care for a memorandum on the following question:

Explain why the savings made by regulation 9 in relation to offences committed before the Regulations came into force do not include a saving in respect of an offence of contravening a requirement under regulation 3 of the Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (North East and North West of England) Regulations 2020 (SI 2020/1010).

2.This is an error, for which the Department apologises. The savings made by regulation 9 should have included a reference to regulation 3 of S.I. 2020/1010, in addition to the references to regulations 4 and 5 of that instrument. The Department has made an amendment to address this in Schedule 3 to the Health Protection (Coronavirus, Local COVID-19 Alert Level) (Medium) (England) Regulations 2020 (S.I. 2020/1103).
