AVIATION (OFFENCES) BILL |
27. This is a private member's bill brought from
the House of Commons. The Department for Transport has provided
a memorandum on the delegated power in the bill for the Committee.
The memorandum is printed at Annex 6 to this Report. Clause 2
of the bill raises from 2 years to 5 years the maximum penalty
for which regulations may provide for an offence involving endangering
an aircraft or a person in an aircraft. The Committee considers
that this is acceptable.
28. There is nothing in the delegated powers
in the bill to which the Committee wishes to draw the attention
of the House.
