Joint Committee on Statutory Instruments Twelfth Report


Memorandum from the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister


1. The Committee has asked for a memorandum on the following point:

Verify the reference to regulation 64 in the definition of "housing land" in new regulation 104B(1) (inserted by regulation 2(3)).

2. Regulation 104B(1) refers to the definition of housing land which was inserted into regulation 64 of the Local Authorities (Capital Finance) Regulations 1997 (S.I. 1997/319) by regulation 5 of the Local Authorities (Capital Finance) (Amendment No. 3) Regulations 1998 (S.I. 1998/1937).

3. The footnote to S.I. 1997/319 in S.I. 2003/43 should have included a reference to S.I. 1998/1937 and we will ensure that the footnote is corrected in the annual volume so that it reads:

"(b) S.I. 1997/319. Regulation 64 was amended by S.I. 1998/1937 and regulation 104A was inserted by S.I. 1999/501. There are other amendments not relevant to these Regulations."
