Regulatory Impact Assessment

Volume 461: debated on Wednesday 20 June 2007

I have today presented to Parliament a Command Paper listing regulatory impact assessments published between July and December 2006. This is the Twenty-Sixth Command Paper.

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 for all regulatory proposals likely to have an impact on business, charities or voluntary bodies and the public sector.

Copies have been placed in the library for the reference of members and will be available in the Vote Office.
