Mr. Bercow

To ask the Deputy Prime Minister which Bills introduced by his Department in the last five years have contained sunset clauses; and what plans he has for the future use of such clauses. [49618]

Mr. Leslie

No Bills introduced by my Department during the period in question have contained sunset clauses. However, as part of their better regulation agenda, the Government are committed to using sunset clauses where appropriate.
