Since July 2007 the Northern Ireland Office and its agencies have not conducted any reviews on regulation.

We are considering the appropriate timing for post legislative scrutiny of Northern Ireland Acts and Orders in Council on excepted and reserved matters that have received Royal Assent since 2005.

We will be agreeing the handling of these reviews with the Northern Ireland Affairs Committee.
