Select Committee on European Union Forty-Ninth Report

Letter from the Chairman to Lord Sainsbury of Turville, Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Science and Innovation, Department of Trade and Industry

  Thank you for your Explanatory Memorandum dated 29 January which Sub-Committee B considered at its meeting on 10 February.

  On the face of it the proposal seems sensible, but we are concerned about the possible costs in any changes to the existing Directive.

  We therefore maintain the Scrutiny reserve on this document until such time as we have seen the regulatory impact assessment.

12 February 2003
