Departmental Regulations

Volume 487: debated on Wednesday 28 January 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs how many regulations were (a) implemented and (b) revoked by his Department in 2008. (250239)

In 2008, DEFRA completed the making of 87 statutory instruments. Of these two were signed on behalf of the Forestry Commissioners, and one on behalf of the Gangmasters Licensing Authority, and two were Orders of the Privy Council.

These statutory instruments revoked 110 enactments, that is to say where all or nearly all of the statutory instrument (or Act in a small number of cases) was revoked.
