HC Deb 19 May 2003 vol 405 c626W
Mr. Lansley

To ask the Deputy Prime Minister what accumulated reduction in compliance costs for United Kingdom business has resulted from the passage of Regulatory Reform Orders. [113656]

Mr. Alexander

I have been asked to reply.

The Cabinet Office oversees the Regulatory Reform Order programme. All Regulatory Reform Orders made have to be accompanied by a full Regulatory Impact Assessment (RIA) when laid before Parliament for scrutiny, setting out the costs and benefits of that proposal. These RIAs are shown on the Cabinet Office Website: http://www.cabinet-office.gov.uk/regulation/ act/made2.htm and Departments have been asked to make these available to the House of Commons Library.
