Example new clause

You can find plenty of examples of new clauses on Bills before Parliament on Parliament’s website. Go to the page for an individual bill, click on “All Bill Documents” and then look at the amendment papers.

This example is from the Automated and Electric Vehicles Bill.

Text of new clause:

To move the following Clause— “Report on electric charging points

  1. The Secretary of State must, within 12 months of this Act receiving Royal Assent, lay a report before Parliament setting out a UK-wide electric charging point strategy that must include, but is not limited to, a strategy for establishing charging points for —
    • domestic properties,
    • urban and rural settlements, and
    • the road network.
  2. Before exercising their duties under subsection (1), the Secretary of State must consult the Scottish Government, the Welsh Government and the Northern Ireland Executive and have regard to their views.”

*Member’s explanatory statement * This new clause would require the Government to consult with devolved administrations and produce a report setting out a UK-wide strategy for electric charging points.
