The text on this page has been created from Hansard archive content, it may contain typographical errors.

asked the Minister for the Civil Service when the Finance Act and the Consumer Safety Act are expected to be printed; what is the delay in each case; and what has caused the delay.

It is expected that the Finance Act will be published on 14th August 1978 and the Consumer Safety Act on 4th August 1978. In these circumstances, the delay between Royal Assent and publication will be 14 and 15 days respectively. I am informed that the period of delay between production and publication is not considered unreasonable.
