Clause 3 - Limitations on order-making power
Regulatory Reform Bill [Lords]
Mr Graham Stringer (Parliamentary Secretary, Cabinet Office; Manchester, Blackley, Labour)
I am not sure whether we have a disagreement or a misunderstanding. I hope that it is a misunderstanding. It might be helpful if I begin by giving three definitions. There is genuine misunderstanding about the phrases ``deregulation'', ``regulatory form'' and ``better regulation''. As I have tried to explain at Cabinet Office questions, deregulation is the removal of regulations and better regulation is improving the quality of regulations and the process of generating them.
