Joint Committee on Statutory Instruments Sixteenth Report


APPENDIX 1

Memorandum from the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs

ENVIRONMENTALLY SENSITIVE AREAS (STAGE II) DESIGNATION (AMENDMENT) (NO. 2) ORDER 2001 (S.I. 2001/3774)

1. By a letter dated 18th December 2001, the Committee has requested that a memorandum be submitted on the following point:

Since this instrument corrects errors in an earlier instrument, has the Department (as required by paragraph 3.24 of Statutory Instrument Practice) made arrangements for copies of the amending instrument to be made available free of charge to all known recipients of the earlier instrument? If so, explain why the amending instrument does not bear a headnote to that effect (see paragraph 3.25 of the Statutory Instrument Practice).

2. Arrangements had been made for the amending instrument to be made available free of charge to all known recipients of the earlier instrument. However, the Department regrets that, by an oversight, the headnote was not added to it. As the instrument has not yet, at the time of writing, been published, arrangements have been made with the Stationery Office for the headnote (appropriately amended) referred to in paragraph 3.25 of Statutory Instrument Practice to be added to the instrument prior to publication. Publication is expected on 27th December 2001.

3. The Department apologises for the oversight.
