§ Miss Quennell
asked the Prime Minister how many Departments exercise powers under statutory instruments; if he will list them and the statutes under which they act, together with a list of the penal consequences they carry for non-compliance; and whether each is subject to affirmative or negative parliamentary procedure.
§ The Prime Minister
A list of the kind requested by the hon. Lady would involve very substantial research and the cost would be disproportionate.
