Correspondence: Sunset provisions in statutory instruments dealing with COVID-19

31.We have noted in previous reports that many statutory instruments that relate to the coronavirus pandemic included sunset provisions. To assist the House in scrutinising the legislation, we asked the Lord President of the Council and Leader of the House of Commons, the Rt Hon. Jacob Rees-Mogg MP, to send us monthly updates so that they could be properly monitored. We asked for these updates to continue in 2022 while pandemic measures remain in place. Our request and a further update are published at Appendix 1.
