Memorandum by the Home
1999 (S.I. 1999/1403)
1. By a letter dated 16 June
1999 from the Commons Clerk of the Committee, the Department was
requested to submit a memorandum on the following point:
Note states that the products in question are exempted from regulations
14 and 18 to 24 of the 1985 Regulations (which relate to documentation,
labelling and record-keeping) and the security requirements of
the 1973 Regulations. Explain the inclusion of the reference to
"the 1985 Regulations", given that no such Regulations
are amended by this instrument.
2. The reference to "the
1985 Regulations" in the Explanatory Note is a reference
to the Misuse of Drugs Regulations 1985 (S.I. 1985/2066).
It is accepted that the reference is not necessary to achieve
the main object of the Note, as defined in paragraph 2.75 of the
Statutory Instrument Practice. The reference was included to help
the reader of the instrument to understand the significance of
the exempted products.
