Select Committee on European Union Fortieth Report


Letter from Rt Hon Alistair Darling MP, Secretary of State for Trade and Industry, Department of Trade and Industry to the Chairman

  On 9 December 2005[24], my predecessor Alan Johnson wrote to you explaining the late depositing of the regulatory impact assessment for digital switchover in the House Libraries. I hope that this has addressed your questions and that your Committee will now be able to lift the scrutiny reserve on this proposal.

Letter from the Chairman to Rt Hon Alistair Darling MP

  Thank you for your letter of 26 June, which Sub-Committee B considered at its meeting on 3 July.

  We are grateful to you for your explanation of the late depositing of the Regulatory Impact Assessment on this proposal and are satisfied that our earlier concerns over the percentage of the population required for the handover have been addressed.

  Therefore we are content to lift the scrutiny reserve on this proposal. We apologise for the delay in clearing the dossier from scrutiny.
