HC Deb 08 July 2003 vol 408 cc674-5W
Bob Spink

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills how many regulations originating from the EU have been implemented by the Department over each of the last five years. [120851]

Alan Johnson

Regulations are, in general, directly applicable in the member states, without the need for implementation in national law.

As far as we have been able to verify, the Department for Education and Skills has had no regulation for implementation over the last five years.
