Affirmative Approval Motion

Tuesday 1 December 2020 between 17:16 and 20:25

This type of business sits within the Delegated Legislation category.


Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (All Tiers) (England) Regulations 2020 Lord Bethell moved that the Regulations laid before the House on 30 November 2020 be approved. Then Lord Robathan moved, as an amendment to the motion, to leave out from “that” to the end and insert “this House declines to approve the draft Regulations because no adequate impact analysis of the social, economic and health costs of the restrictions to address the COVID-19 pandemic, compared to the benefits of those restrictions, has been laid before Parliament.” After debate, the amendment was withdrawn. Then Baroness Neville-Rolfe moved, as an amendment to the motion in the name of Lord Bethell, at end to insert “but that this House regrets that the restrictions being introduced to address the COVID-19 pandemic were not informed by a wide and detailed analysis of the costs and benefits of the possible measures to be adopted.” The amendment was disagreed to (see division). Then the original motion was agreed to.
