Joint Committee on Statutory Instruments Fourth Report


APPENDIX VI

Memorandum by the Department of Social Security

PERSONAL INJURIES (CIVILIANS) AMENDMENT SCHEME 1997 (S.I. 1997/812)

  The Committee has requested a memorandum on the following point:

    "This instrument has been amended nineteen times since it was first made in 1983. Indicate whether an early consolidation is planned".

  The Department accepts that, having regard to the number of occasions on which the Personal Injuries (Civilians) Amendment Scheme 1997 (S.I. 1997/812) has been amended, it would be desirable to consolidate the Order to reflect the current state of law. The Department will undertake a consolidation as soon as resources permit, although this may not be possible in the near future.
