asked Her Majesty's Government:Whether the regulations to be made under Section 68 of the Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000 are yet available in draft: and when they propose to invite Parliament to approve them. [HL421]
Officials are currently drafting the regulations. Although we have a good overview of the provisions to be included, considerable work is needed on the detail. Provided no unforeseen problems arise, we expect to publish draft regulations for public consultation in March, and lay these before Parliament for approval in May.
