§ 46. Mr. MacFarquhar
asked the Lord President of the Council if he will list the measures which it has been the policy of his administration to introduce since March 1974, showing which have been enacted, which are in the process of enactment, which are at the Bill-drafting stage, which are the subject of White or Green Papers and which remain to be tackled.
§ Mr. Edward Short
The Government's main programme of legislation was set out in two Queen's Speeches on 12th March and 29th October 1974. Since this administration came into office a total of 53 Bills have been enacted. The Public Bill list published in the Order Paper gives progress on Bills which have been introduced. The drafting of all the other Bills is in hand, but it is not possible to say yet which of them will be supported by additional White or Green Papers over and above those already available in the Vote Office.
