Joint Committee on Statutory Instruments Sixteenth Report


Memorandum from HM Treasury


1. The Treasury submits this note in response to the request dated 11 December 2001 from the Clerk of the Joint Committee on the point set out below:

In the copies of this instrument supplied to the Committee, the date of coming into force in regulation 1 was left incomplete. Explain whether the instrument as made contained a complete date and, if so, what that date was.

2. The Department confirms that the instrument as made contained the date of coming into force, 12 December 2001. The fact that this date was omitted from the copies distributed to the Joint Committee was a regrettable oversight.

3. The Treasury apologises for this lapse and the inconvenience it will have caused.

17 December 2001
