HC Deb 02 April 1996 vol 275 c85W
Mr. Steen

To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster which of the 1,000 regulations identified for repeal or amendment by the Prime Minister are the responsibility of his Department; of those which(a) have been repealed or amended and (b) are planned to have been repealed or amended by the end of the 1995–96 parliamentary Session; and if he will list those whose repeal has saved business more than £1 million per annum. [23645]

Mr. Freeman

I am arranging for a list of regulations which have been repealed or amended to date to be compiled and placed in the House Libraries. This will also include examples of the savings to business. Details of regulations still to be amended or repealed will be announced as and when consultations are completed.
