Joint Committee on Statutory Instruments Thirty-Second Report


Memorandum by the Department of the Environment, Transport and the Regions

(S.I. 1998/808)

1.  The Committee, by a letter from its clerk dated 22nd April 1998, has requested a memorandum on the following point:

    Regulations 3(b), 4, 7, 10 and 11 correct typographical errors in the 1996 Regulations. Explain why these were dealt with by provisions of a substantive amending instrument and not by means of an earlier correction slip or corrections in the bound volume version.

2.  We agree that the corrections should have been made by a correction slip or in the bound volume and regret that this was not done.
