HC Deb 19 December 1975 vol 902 cc805-6W
Mr. Wigley

asked the Secretary of State for Wales how many statutory instruments have been made by him since 1st March 1974; what broad spheres have been covered by these instruments; and what proportion of this number would pass to the Welsh Assembly under the Government's proposals.

Mr. John Morris

From 1st March 1974 to 30th November 1975 I was solely responsible for making 136 Statutory Instruments. The main areas covered were local government, health, education, housing, water, and roads Almost all these Statutory Instruments would have been made by the Welsh Assembly had the Government's proposals in Cmnd. 6348 been in operation during this period.

I have also made a large number of Statutory Instruments jointly with other Ministers. I shall write to the hon. Member about these Instruments.
