§ Mr. William Powell
To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he will list the short title of any legislative Act approved by European Community member states since 1 January in relation to which each state must take national implementing measures; and what action has been taken by each state in relation to each such measure.
§ Mr. Redwood
The table lists the directives relevant to completion of the single European market which have been formally adopted by the Council of Ministers since 1 January 1990. A period of grace, typically 18 months, is allowed for member states to transpose directives into national law. It is generally too early, therefore, to comment on what action member states will take to implement these directives. In addition, directives in other areas of application, most notably concerning health and safety at the workplace, have also been adopted during this period. A full list of these and other legislative acts—regulations, decisions and recommendations—is recorded in the Official Journal of the European Communities, copies of which are available in the House of Commons Library.
