These bills seek to implement that which the government refused to implement, M610. Given the validity of theory certificates is dictated by legislation the statement issued by the government was insufficient to extend the validity of the licences. These bills seek to amend the relevant regulations to bring the contents of the statement into force, however given the likely date these bills would be able to pass leaves only about a month of effectiveness we have decided to extend the eligibility to the end of the year giving up to approximately 4 months of extra eligibility

This is done via two separate bills as Northern Ireland licencing is dictated by separate regulations to Great Britain.

Will the government vote against their own policy because they aren't the ones doing it?
