Amendments made: 174, page 100, line 15, leave out from “duties” to end of line 16 and insert

“, or exercising powers, imposed or conferred by regulations made under this Part or exercising other functions in connection with such regulations”.

This amendment adjusts the wording in clause 76(1) for consistency with similar wording in clauses 74(1) and 75(1).

Amendment 175, page 100, line 17, leave out subsection (2) and insert—

“(2) But subsection (1) does not enable financial assistance to be provided to a person listed in subsection (2A) or to a person acting on their behalf.

(2A) Those persons are—

(a) data holders,

(b) customers,

(c) authorised persons, or

(d) third party recipients, other than a third party recipient that is a public authority subject to requirements imposed by regulations made in reliance on section 68(2A).”—(Sir John Whittingdale.)

This amendment prevents the provision of financial assistance to people acting on behalf of certain persons. It also enables financial assistance to be provided to a public authority that is subject to requirements under clause 68(2A) (see Amendment 116).
