Henry VIII Clauses: Legislation

Volume 498: debated on Monday 2 November 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice how many Henry VIII powers have been enacted in primary legislation in the present Session of Parliament. (295599)

The Government do not routinely collect or hold information about the number of Henry VIII provisions. An exercise is being conducted in order to answer this question which will take some time. The required information is being collated and I hope to write to the hon. Member by the end of November. A copy will be placed in the House Library.
