Environment (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill 2014: Financial Resolution

I move:

THAT provision be made in the Environment (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill 2014 to amend section 1 of, and the First Schedule to, the Finance (Excise Duties) (Vehicles) Act 1952 to provide in secondary legislation for the physical characteristics, uses to which a vehicle may be put, and the supporting documentation required in determining eligibility for motor tax at a particular rate or an exemption from motor tax, and to amend the definition of a motor caravan to allow the physical characteristics required for eligibility to the motor caravan rate to be determined by secondary legislation.

I am putting forward this motion to allow a number of important amendments to the Environment (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill 2014 in the areas of local government finance, waste management, motor tax and water policy. These amendments have been well-flagged and have been provided in writing to the Deputies within the required timeframe, as provided in Standing Orders. The well-known water-related amendments referred to in this resolution were announced by my Department on 6 May last, all of nine weeks ago at this stage. Pursuant to Standing Order 177-----

We are taking this motion without debate.
