HC Deb 05 December 1995 vol 268 c161W
Mr. Steen

To ask the President of the Board of Trade what legislation from his Department passed in the last five years contains provision for statutory repeal or review. [2031]

Mr. Oppenheim

[holding answer 27 November 1995]: The Coal Industry Act 1994 and the Gas Act 1995 contain provisions relating to the expiry of certain powers.

The Deregulation and Contracting Out Act 1994 introduced a new procedure for making deregulation orders to repeal or amend primary legislation where it imposes burdens which could be removed or reduced without removing necessary protection.
