Volume 475: debated on Tuesday 13 May 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport how many statutory instruments have been (a) made and (b) revoked by Ministers in her Department and its predecessors since 1997. (204763)

In the period from the creation of the Department for Transport in May 2002 until 31 March 2008 approximately 834 general statutory instruments and 9,512 local statutory instruments were made in the name of the Secretary of State for Transport.

The number of statutory instruments made by Ministers of predecessor Departments, and of statutory instruments revoked, could be provided only at disproportionate cost.
