HL Deb 10 April 2001 vol 624 c166WA
Lord Burnham

asked Her Majesty's Government:

In relation to a possible new tri-service Armed Forces discipline Bill whether they will undertake to review from first principles the issue of which matters requiring subordinate legislation should be dealt with by (a) the affirmative order procedure, (b) the negative order procedure, and (c) Defence Council regulations, together with the matter of parliamentary accountability in respect of these last. [HL1585]

Baroness Symons of Vernham Dean

I can confirm that these issues will be considered as part of the work on the proposed tri-service Bill.
