§ Mr. Ben Chapman
To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office if he will list those compliance cost assessments published during the latest six month period. 
§ Dr. Jack Cunningham
The Government are committed to ensuring that regulations are necessary, give effective protection, balance cost and risk, are fair and command public confidence. In accordance with this, we require Departments to produce and publish CCAs for all regulatory proposals likely to have an impact on business.
I have presented to Parliament today a Command Paper listing 119 CCAs and regulatory appraisals incorporating CCAs published between 1 January 1998 and 30 June 1998. Also listed are 2 Regulatory Impact Assessments prepared in anticipation of the new guidance published on 10 August 1998. Copies of those listed have been placed in the libraries of the House. This is the ninth such Command Paper.
