To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he will set out how each recommendation of the 1998 Edwards report into the regulation regime in Britain's overseas dependent territories has been implemented.

I have been asked to reply.

The 1998 Edwards report covered Crown Dependencies (Isle of Man, Jersey, Guernsey) and not Overseas Dependent Territories.

I understand that Jersey, Guernsey and the Isle of Man have implemented the majority of the recommendations made in the Edwards report. More detailed information about implementation of particular recommendations can most easily be obtained through contact with the relevant Crown Dependency.
