HC Deb 15 March 1978 vol 946 cc195-6W
Mr. Arnold

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will specify those Acts currently in force which are administered in a manner similar to that of the Employment Agencies Act 1973, whereby the enforcement of regulations made under the Act is financed from fees paid by licensees.

Mr. Merlyn Rees

I am responsible for prescribing fees for licences or certificates under the following legislation:

Where the costs of enforcement are separately identifiable—for example, where compliance with regulations is enforced by an inspectorate—such costs are taken into account in prescribing the level of fee.
