§ 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. 
§ 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.
