Memorandum by the Department of Health
Wyre Forest Primary Care Trust (Establishment)
Order 2001 (S.I. 2001/66)
1. The Committee has requested a memorandum on the
following point in relation to the above Order.
Explain why the text of this
instrument occupies 8 pages (including 2 blank pages), instead
of 4 pages (ending with the Explanatory Note), thereby increasing
the purchase price. The Department's attention is drawn to Statutory
Instrument Practice Circular No. 2(98) dated 12 March 1998.
2. The Department apologises for the error which
led to the text of the instrument occupying 8 pages.
3. This error appears to have been made on the part
of the printers, but was not noticed during the proofing process.
4. The Department will reiterate to all relevant
personnel the need to comply with the Circular, so that proofs
are thoroughly checked to minimise the amount of blank space in
Statutory Instruments. The Department will take all necessary
steps to ensure that the same error does not appear in future
