No amendments to the framework

28.104No amendments may be made to the granting or enacting words of bills for granting aids or supplies to the Crown, or to the enacting words of other bills, which form part of the ‘framework’ of the bill and are not submitted to the committee.1 The same applies to the short titles of the clauses and schedules, and the headings of parts of the bill, which may nonetheless be changed as an editorial matter in the subsequent printing of the bill, as amended, to take account of amendments made or of changes made in the order in which clauses and schedules appear.2
