§ Mr. Bercow
To ask the Solicitor-General which Bills introduced by her Department in the last five years have contained sunset clauses; and what plans she has for the future use of such clauses. 
§ The Solicitor-General
[holding answer 17 April 2002]: In the last five years this Department has introduced two Bills—which became the Law Officers Act 1997 and the Crown Prosecution Service Inspectorate Act 2000. Neither contained sunset clauses. I have no plans for the future use of sunset clauses.
