New Regulation (Sixth Statement)

Volume 566: debated on Wednesday 10 July 2013

The Government are today publishing the sixth statement of new regulation. This statement reports on regulations within the scope of the “One-in, Two-out” rule which are expected to come into force between 1 July and 31 December 2013. The statement shows that the sum total of Government deregulation since January 2011 and December 2013 will be to reduce the net annual cost to business by around £931 million.

The statement also reports on the red tape challenge measures expected to come into force and progress on the targets; and EU measures which are implemented by UK regulations.

In parallel, Departments are each publishing a summary of the regulations they intend to introduce.

I am placing a copy of the statement in the Libraries of both Houses.
