Select Committee on Deregulation and Regulatory Reform Ninth Report


Further letter from the Clerk of the Committee to the Department for Work and Pensions

Proposal for the Regulatory Reform (Vaccine Damage Payments Act 1979) Order 2002

Thank you for your letters of 8 and 13 February, which the Committee considered at its meeting this morning.

The Committee wishes to consider further the proposal to designate the transitional provisions as subordinate. Bearing in mind that a subordinate provisions order could be brought forward without any prior consultation; that the transitional provisions in the Order are as provided for in the original consultation on the proposal; and that the original consultation did not envisage that the transitional provisions might be subject to further amendment, the Committee would like to know in what circumstances the Government might envisage amending these provisions, and to what end. Examples would be helpful.
