I beg to move amendment 94, in clause 23, page 22, line 13, at end insert—

“(11) Within two years of this Act coming into force, the Secretary of State shall commission an independent evaluation of the operation of the expanded written procedure made under this section and shall lay the report of the evaluation before each House of Parliament.”

This amendment ensures the expanded use of the written procedure is reviewed within two years.
