HC Deb 26 January 1998 vol 305 c54W
Mr. Page

To ask the President of the Board of Trade how many regulations have been abolished by her Department since 1 May; and if she will list them. [23797]

Mrs. Beckett

Since 1 May 1997 my Department has revoked the Unichem Limited (Allotment of Shares) Order 1989. In addition we have simplified primary legislation by exempting certain types of radio equipment from licensing under the Wireless Telegraphy Act 1949 and by removing unnecessary requirements from the Restrictive Trade Practices Act 1976.
