Joint Committee on Statutory Instruments Eighth Report


APPENDIX 2

Memorandum by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office

AFGHANISTAN (UNITED NATIONS SANCTIONS) (OVERSEAS TERRITORIES)

ORDER 2001 (S.I. 2001/392)

IRAQ (UNITED NATIONS SANCTIONS) (OVERSEAS TERRITORIES) (AMENDMENT)

ORDER 2001 (S.I. 2001/395)

   AFGHANISTAN (UNITED NATIONS SANCTIONS) ORDER 2001 (S.I. 2001/396)

   LIBERIA (UNITED NATIONS SANCTIONS) (OVERSEAS TERRITORIES)

ORDER 2001 (S.I. 2001/946)

LIBERIA (UNITED NATIONS SANCTIONS) ORDER 2001 (S.I. 2001/947)

1. The Committee has raised points in relation to the above orders.

2. S.I. 2001/392, 395 and 396 were laid before Parliament on 15 February 2001 and S.I. 2001/946 and 947 were laid on 15 March 2001, but copies were not sent to the Committee until 16 May 2001. This was an oversight and the comments contained in the memorandum from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office of 7 November 2000 (printed as appendix 8 to the Thirty-first Report (Session 1999-2000)) in relation to the substantial delays have been noted. In future copies will be sent immediately upon receipt from the Stationery Office.

3. S.I. 2001/395 corrects an error in an earlier instrument. The amending instrument did not bear a headnote and this again was an oversight. The instrument was not issued free of charge in accordance with paragraph 3.25 of the Statutory Instrument Practice. This is regretted and the relevant officials and legal advisers have been reminded of the rule.
