Regulatory Enforcement and Sanctions Bill [HL]

Volume 696: debated on Thursday 8 November 2007

My Lords, on behalf of my noble friend Lord Jones of Birmingham, I beg leave to introduce a Bill to make provision for the establishment of the local better regulation office; for the co-ordination of regulatory enforcement by local authorities; for the creation of civil sanctions in relation to regulatory offences; for the reduction and removal of regulatory burdens; and for connected purposes. I beg to move that this Bill be now read a first time.

Moved accordingly, and, on Question, Bill read a first time, and ordered to be printed.
