Memorandum from the Foreign and Commonwealth

ORDER 2002 (S.I. 2002/2637)
2002 (S.I. 2002/2638)
The Committee has asked why S.I. 2002/2627 which
was laid before Parliament on 23 October 2002, and S.I. 2002/2637
and S.I. 2002/2638 which were laid on 4 November 2002, were not
sent to the Committee until 29 January 2003.
1. This was the result of a misunderstanding of a
letter of 23 May 2002 from the Secretary for the Committee concerning
the Committee's requirements. Once the misunderstanding was realised,
copies of the instruments were sent to the Committee. The error
is regretted and the relevant officers have been reminded of the
need to send copies of instruments to the Committee immediately
upon receipt from the Stationery Office.
Letter to the Head of Legal Executive
Section, Foreign and Commonwealth Office, from the Secretary to
the Joint Committee on Statutory Instruments
JOINT COMMITTEE ON STATUTORY INSTRUMENTS
It is no longer necessary to send us explanatory
memoranda on disk for Statutory Instruments or Drafts. If 25 copies
of the explanatory memoranda are sent with a Statutory Instrument
or Draft, we do not need a disk.
However, if a question is raised on a Statutory Instrument
or Draft, we will request you send a copy of the explanatory memoranda
by email to the email address specified within the letter.
