Memorandum by the Lord
1999 (S.I. 1999/3491)
1. By a letter dated 26 January
2000, the Joint Committee on Statutory Instruments has requested
the Department to submit a memorandum on the following point:
was made on 15 December 1999 but was not laid before Parliament
until 14 January 2000. Explain the reason for this delay."
2. The Lord Chancellor's Department
apologises for the delay in laying this instrument. This was caused
by the combined effect of the Christmas and New Year break together
with the need for several printers' proof stages owing to the
complexity of the forms attached to the statutory instrument.
The Rules will not come into force until 5 June 2000.
