Joint Committee on Statutory Instruments Twenty-Third Report



APPENDIX I

Memorandum by the Home Office

MISUSE OF DRUGS (AMENDMENT) REGULATIONS 1999 (S.I. 1999/1404)

  1. By a letter dated 16 June 1999 from the Commons Clerk of the Committee, the Department was requested to submit a memorandum on the following point:

    Does the Department, in view of the many amendments to the principal Regulations (S.I. 1985/2066), intend to produce an early consolidation?

  2. The Department does indeed intend to produce a consolidated set of Misuse of Drugs Regulations. A first draft of such Regulations has already been produced and it is intended that they will be made later this year.

  3. The importance of making the amendment contained in S.I. 1999/1404 was considered to override the case for delaying until the consolidated Regulations are ready.
