Instruments to be considered by the Committee on 26 February

19 February 2019

The Committee will be considering 13 negative proposed SIs at its next meeting on 26 February. Below you can find out how to engage and keep up with the Committee's work.

We have launched an engagement tool where you can find negative proposed SIs that the Committee will be considering at its meetings. We'll post negative proposed SIs as soon as they are laid so you can comment on it until a day before the Committee meets. You can see the deadline for submitting comment under each SI.

If you or your organisation has comments or concerns on a specific statutory instrument, you can submit your comments to us. Please head here to find out how to do that.

The Committee can recommend these proposed negatives to instead be subject to the affirmative route, and a Lord's Committee (the Statutory Instruments Scrutiny Committee) conducts scrutiny of the same instruments.

The Government can reject or accept recommendations made by the Committees, but has to provide a written statement if it chooses to reject a recommendation to make a statutory instrument affirmative.
