Finance Bill withdrawn for correction

printer Mail

A new Finance Bill was published on 30 September. It was withdrawn for correction soon after publication. A note on the face of the revised version, see, reads:

‘This Bill has been re-issued because of omissions in the text of the Bill as published on 30 September. The texts of clauses 19, 20, 21 and 22 were omitted; clauses 23 to 31 were wrongly numbered as clauses 19 to 27; and the texts of clauses 32 and 33 were omitted.’

This is the third Finance Bill to be published in 2010 but is titled ‘Finance (No. 2) Bill 2010-11’ because it is the second Finance Bill to be published in the current parliamentary session.

It will become Finance (No 3) Act 2010.

The Bill has 33 clauses and 14 schedules. Explanatory notes and lobby notes are available on the Treasury website.

There was no debate when the Bill was presented to Parliament on 15 September. The second reading is scheduled for 11 October.
