HC Deb 29 November 1973 vol 865 cc191-2W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will give either a detailed list or summary of the rules, regulations, directives, duties and levies as imposed by the Common Market which affects his Department in any way; and to what extent these have increased or decreased prices and costs or made any difference to the expenditure of his Department, the consumer, or taxpayer for which he has ministerial responsibility.

Mr. Lane

No. The English texts of Community secondary legislation adopted before the enlargement of the Community are published in the Special English Edition of the Official Journal. An index to that edition has been published by Her Majesty's Stationery Office. Secondary legislation adopted since 1st January 1973 is listed on the front pages of the issues of the Official Journal in which the texts are published. All these publications are available in both the Vote Office and the Library.

The second part of the Question could be answered, in so far as that is practicable, only at an unjustifiable cost to public funds.
