Joint Committee On Statutory Intruments Sixth Report


APPENDIX 2

Memorandum from the Department of Health

NATIONAL HEALTH SERVICE (LOCAL PHARMACEUTICAL SERVICES ETC.) REGULATIONS 2002 (S.I. 2002/2861)

Request: given that the principal Regulations (S.I. 1992/662) have now been amended on many occasions (including those mentioned in footnote (a) at page 2), indicate what plans the Department has for consolidating those Regulations.

1. The Department agrees that the National Health Service (Pharmaceutical Services) Regulations 1992, S.I. 1992/662, are in need of consolidation.

2. However, there are no plans at present to consolidate the Regulations as further substantial amendments to the Regulations are planned for the first half of 2003.

3. The Department will consider further the question of consolidating the Regulations once resources for the task are available and after the further amendments planned for the first half of 2003 are made.
