Joint Committee on Statutory Instruments First Report


Memorandum by the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries

and Food


(S.I. 1998/2410)

1.  The Committee by letter dated 11 November 1998 has requested a memorandum on the following point:

    Will the Department consider consolidating the principal Regulations for the assistance of readers.

2.  The 1998 Regulations simply brought references up to date and deleted a spent provision. In addition, previous amendments to the principal Regulations were of a similarly minor nature. The Ministry therefore did not consider it necessary to consolidate on this occasion. The Ministry will however consider consolidation on the next occasion for amendment relating to a matter of greater substance.
