§ Mr. Bercow
To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will list the EU directives and regulations that have been implemented through his Department in 2002; and what was the cost of each to public funds. 
§ Ruth Kelly
The following directives and regulations have been implemented to this date in 2002directive 2000/46/EC on the taking-up, pursuit of and prudential supervision of the business of electronic money institutions;directive 2000/28/EC relating to the taking-up and pursuit of the business of credit institutions;directive 44/2001 on mutual assistance recovery;the Protection of the Euro against Counterfeiting Regulations 2001 (SI 2001/3948) specified criminal penalties for breach of Council Regulation (EC) No.1338/2001;the provisions of the Customs Code Committee came into force on 1 January 2002, amending the preferential agreement with the Faroe Islands, by introducing legal provisions for proof of origin.
I am not aware of any further directives being implemented in 2002, but the Department does not keep a single record of this information and it could be assembled only at disproportionate cost. Similarly, calculating the cost to public funds of the directives' implementation would involve disproportionate cost.
