Government policy does not require an impact assessment to be prepared for an instrument, unless there are also costs or savings to businesses or civil society organisations. Information about costs to the public purse where there is no impact assessment could be provided only at disproportionate cost. This is because of the level of analysis that would be required to answer the question.

Links to the IA published in the IA library are included for the impact assessments produced over the period, which estimate the costs of each measure, including those to the public purse.
