§ Mr. Alan Johnson
The Postal Services Regulations 1999 (1999 No. 2107) laid before Parliament on 27 July 1999 implement the EU Postal Services Directive (97/67/EC) in the United Kingdom to the extent that it was not already covered by existing legislation and procedures. It came into force on 1 September.
It is for the European Commission to monitor the transposition of EU Directives across the Community and take appropriate action as necessary. The Commission publishes information on which Directives have been transposed on its CELEX database. This can be accessed on the Parliamentary intranet at the Library of the House.
