HC Deb 11 November 1999 vol 337 c724W
Mr. Gibb

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what plans he has to revise the Working Time Regulations. [97817]

Mr. Alan Johnson

Draft regulations to amend the Working Time Regulations, in respect of the requirement to keep records for workers who have opted out of the working time limit and extending the scope of the unmeasured working time exemption, were laid before Parliament on 19 October. They have now been debated in both Houses and will be made shortly.

There is no proposal to revise any other part of the Working Time Regulations at this time.
