Public Bodies Order

Peers debated and passed the Public Bodies (Abolition of the Railway Heritage Committee) Order 2013, on 17 December 2012.

The order abolishes the Railway Heritage Committee and transfers its functions to the Board of Trustees of the Science Museum.

The order is made under the Section 1 of the Public Bodies Act 2011, which permits a minister to abolish a specified body or office.

Labour peer Lord Faulkner of Worcester tabled, and later withdrew, a motion of regret to protest against the order.
