Legislative and Regulatory Reform Bill — New Clause "2" — Report on Operation of Act — 16 May 2006 at 17:15
Stuart Bell MP, Middlesbrough voted with the majority (No).
[T]he Secretary of State must prepare and lay before Parliament an [annual] report setting out his estimate of the extent to which orders, rules and schemes made... [under] this Act have: removed or reduced any burden,... [imposed] a burden that has affected any person... [that] was proportionate to the benefit that was expected, or removed inconsistencies and anomalies in legislation.
The requirement to make such a report would have arguably been an "administrative burden", which would have been an example where the Act could have been self-modifying.
