To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills whether he has had discussions with ministerial colleagues on including European legislation in the quarterly statements on regulation that are published by central Government Departments.

Yes. The Statement of New Regulation, published twice a year, currently includes a commentary on the action the Government are taking in relation to European regulation. The statement also now includes details of regulations being scrapped as a result of the Red Tape Challenge. Expanding the statements to provide an overview of forthcoming measures that transpose European legislation is something that I have asked the Better Regulation Executive to examine.
