To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office when he plans to publish a command paper listing the regulatory impact assessments published during the latest six-month period. [115022]

The Government are committed to ensuring that regulations are necessary, give effective protection, balance cost and risk, are fair and command public confidence. In accordance with this, we require Departments to produce and publish Regulatory Impact Assessments (RIAs) for all regulatory proposals likely to have an impact on business, charities and the voluntary sector.

My right hon. and noble friend Lord Macdonald of Tradeston has today presented to Parliament a Command Paper listing RIAs published between 1 July and 31 December 2002. Copies of those listed have been placed in the Libraries of both Houses. This is the eighteenth such Command Paper.
