To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what legislation from his Department passed in the last five years contains provision for statutory repeal or review. [2029]

[holding answer 27 November 1995]: There were no such provisions in recent legislation. However, major reviews have been carried out on MAFF legislation relating to areas such as milk marketing, agricultural tenancies and food law. These have resulted in the abolition of the milk marketing scheme and the introduction of the Agricultural Tenancies Act 1995, under which landlords and tenants entering new tenancies will be able to agree terms which reflect their own particular needs. By 1 January 1996, we expect to repeal or simplify a series of national measures relating to food composition and food additives.
