Mr. Redwood

To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs how many pages of(a) primary and (b) secondary legislation her Department put through Parliament in 2002–03. [141171]

Alun Michael

Two of the Bills sponsored by the Department during the 2002–03 session were enacted, amounting to a total of 270 pages.

In the case of secondary legislation the Department was responsible for the making of 120 General Statutory Instruments which were subject to consideration by either the Joint Committee on Statutory Instruments or the Select Committee on Statutory Instruments. The total number of pages can be calculated only at disproportionate cost.
