The Regulatory Reform Committee (previously the Deregulation and Regulatory Reform Committee) is appointed to consider and report to the House on draft Legislative Reform Orders under the Legislative and Regulatory Reform Act 2006. Its full remit is set out in S.O. No. 141, which was approved on 4 July 2007.
Paragraph (9) of Standing Order No.141 requires us to consider any draft regulatory reform order against the following criteria:
whether the special attention of the House should be drawn to it on any of the grounds laid down in paragraph (1) of Standing Order No. 151 (Statutory Instruments (Joint Committee)); and if the committee is of the opinion that any such order or draft order should be annulled, or, as the case may be, should not be approved, they shall report that opinion to the House.
Committee reports are published on the publications page of the Committee’s website and in print by Order of the House. All publications of the Committee (including press notices) are on the internet at .
The current staff of the Committee are Ben Sneddon (Clerk), and Jonathan Olivier-Wright (Senior Committee Assistant).
