Legislation Bill

Introduced on June 20, the Bill rewrites and replaces the Legislation Act 2012. It requires secondary legislation to be published on the Legislation website alongside Acts of Parliament. Currently over 100 agencies are empowered to make secondary legislation on a wide range of matters such as food standards and financial reporting standards. There is currently no single source for these legislative instruments, many of which are published on agency websites or in gazettes notices. Recieved its first reading on Dec 5 and was referred to the Justice Committee. Reported back on June 1 with a number of amendments most reflecting the difficulty in publishing all secondary legislation. Second reading on Oct 15, committee stage on Oct 16 with the bill divided into the Legislation Bill and the Legislation (Repeals and Amendments) Bill. Third reading on Oct 22 with all parties in agreement.   Legislation Bill
