Legislative Reform Orders

2.In this report, the Committee sets out its conclusions in relation to two draft Legislative Reform Orders (LROs). The Committee’s role is described in its first Report on an LRO: “When considering an LRO, our role is not to consider in depth the policy in the draft order, but to consider whether it is ‘appropriate’ to be made under the 2006 Act; if so, whether it meets the tests in the 2006 Act; and to consider the matters considered for other instruments by the Joint Committee on Statutory Instruments.”1
