HC Deb 01 June 1998 vol 313 c135W
Mr. Page

To ask the Secretary of State for Health if he will list the regulations that have been amended or removed to help small businesses since 1 May 1997. [42786]

Ms Jowell

While none of the regulations laid by the Department have specifically targeted small businesses, all which impact on business generally take account of the needs of small businesses. For example, Statutory Instrument 1998/574, The Medicines for Human Use and Medical Devices (Fees and Miscellaneous Amendments) Regulations 1998, reduced fees for all businesses involved in the manufacture and sale of medicines for human use. It also extended a small business concession to a greater number of companies.
