HC Deb 17 February 1987 vol 110 c546W
Mr. Alton

asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland if he will list the measures introduced by his Department since 1979 that were not subject to parliamentary procedure and therefore not debated in the House of Commons.

Mr. Tom King

All primary legislation for Northern Ireland (Bills and Orders in Council under the Northern Ireland Act 1974) is subject to parliamentary procedure. The Northern Ireland Statutory Rules and Orders, available in the Library, indicate the volume and nature of subordinate legislation and identify those Statutory Rules and Orders which were laid before Parliament.
