HC Deb 09 February 2001 vol 362 cc748-9W
Mr. Denzil Davies

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs how many EU regulations and directives containing comitology powers were issued in the last 12 months. [147320]

Mr. Vaz

Many pieces of Community legislation contain implementing measures governed by comitology rules. In 1996, the total number of EU measures containing comitology powers was 4,500. No figures have been released by the Commission since then.
