Joint Committee on Statutory Instruments Twelfth Report


TWELFTH REPORT

FROM THE JOINT COMMITTEE OF BOTH HOUSES APPOINTED TO SCRUTINISE STATUTORY INSTRUMENTS, ETC.[1]

ORDERED TO REPORT:

  1. The Committee has considered the instruments set out in the Annex to this Report and has determined that the special attention of both Houses does not require to be drawn to any of them.

  2. Two memoranda from the Department of Health in connection with the National Health Service (General Medical Services) Amendment Regulations 2000 (S.I. 2000/220) are printed in Appendix 1.

ROAD TRANSPORT (PASSENGER VEHICLES CABOTAGE) REGULATIONS 1999 (S.I. 1999/3413)

  3. The Committee draws the special attention of both Houses to these Regulations on the ground that they fail in one respect to implement the Council Regulation.

  4. The Regulations implement Council Regulation (EC) No. 12/98, which lays down the conditions under which road passenger transport carriers of Member States may operate cabotage transport operations. The Department of the Environment, Transport and the Regions admit in the first of the two memoranda printed in Appendix 2 that, while the Regulations appoint the United Kingdom's competent authority for carriers established in this country, they do not appoint the United Kingdom's competent authority to carry out the functions required of a host Member State for carriers established in other Member States, as required by the Council Regulation. The Committee reports the Regulations for failing in that respect to implement the Council Regulation, acknowledged by the Department.
