Joint Committee on Statutory Instruments Twentieth Report


APPENDIX VI

Memorandum by the Department of Environment, Transport and the Regions

MOTOR VEHICLES (TYPE APPROVAL FOR GOODS VEHICLES) (GREAT BRITAIN) (AMENDMENT) (NO. 2) REGULATIONS 1997 (S.I. 1997/2936)

1.At its meeting on 13th January the Committee instructed that the Department be requested to submit a Memorandum on the following point:-

    Regulation 2(2) substitutes a new date for the date in "regulation 13A(2)" of the 1982 Regulations. Ought this not to be a reference to regulation 18A(2) of those Regulations?

2.  The Committee is correct. The reference should have been to regulation 18A(2) of the 1982 Regulations, there being no regulation 13A in those Regulations. It is likely that the Department will be making further Regulations on this topic quite shortly. It will accordingly consider whether that opportunity could be used to rectify this regrettable error.

19th January 1998
