Bailiffs: Powers

Volume 488: debated on Tuesday 3 March 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice when the draft regulations for the Tribunals Courts and Enforcement Act 2007 in respect of bailiff powers will be published. (259135)

I refer the hon. Member to my answer of 27 January 2009, Official Report, column 372W. The enforcement provisions in the Tribunals, Court and Enforcement Act 2007 are far reaching reforms. The provisions have recently undergone a comprehensive reassessment by Ministers to ensure that they remain appropriate even under this difficult financial climate. This assessment has now been concluded and a statement will be made shortly.
