Departmental Legislation

Volume 503: debated on Thursday 7 January 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice what criminal offences have been (a) created and (b) abolished by secondary legislation sponsored by his Department since 1 May 2008. (307797)

The Ministry of Justice has been responsible for 237 statutory instruments since May 2008. The number of offences which these created and abolished can be established only at disproportionate cost since a manual trawl of the legislation would be required.
