To ask Her Majesty's Government whether, following the withdrawal of the draft Legislative Reform (Horserace Betting Levy) Order 2018, they intend to revise the guidance by the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills Legislative Reform Orders: Guide for Policy Officials, published in May 2016.

The current guidance on Legislative Reform Orders (LRO) was published in 2016 and includes comprehensive information on the rules and processes governing the use of LROs. The guidance makes clear that it is the responsibility of the owning Department to scrutinise their proposal against the criteria set out in the Legislation and Regulatory Reform Act 2006 and this scrutiny should be completed with Departmental lawyers. The Government has no plans to issue revised guidance.
