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.
