Subject Index to Green Papers and Consultation Documents

The following is a list of Green Papers (a term used to cover all consultation documents, discussion papers, and other items which set out proposals which are at a formative or uncomplicated stage and are issued to solicit comment) received by the House of Commons Information Office in the 2000-2001 Session. The non-appearance of an item in this list cannot be taken as evidence that such a title does not exist. Most items are published or 'made available' by individual Government departments or agencies, from whom copies should be sought. (Some also appear in the Chadwyck Healey Catalogue of British Official Publications not published by TSO). The few that are TSO published items have a Command Paper number or other reference attached. Details of the consultation period and issuing office address may be found in the edition of the Weekly Information Bulletin next following the date of receipt.

Regulatory Impact Assessments

Regulatory Impact Assessments (RIAs) are prepared and published by the Government for all primary legislation introduced into and secondary legislation laid before Parliament. In the case of most Government Bills, a RIA forms part of the Explanatory Memoranda to the Bill: in other cases, a separate document is issued. RIAs are an assessment for the business sector of the costs involved in complying with the legislation. The Department of Trade and Industry issues a six monthly list of RIAs as a Command Paper. The publication of this paper is noted in the White Papers section of the Digest.
