The request was successful.

Dear House of Commons Administration Committee,

The Insolvency Amendment (EU 2015/848) Regulations 2017 - not laid before parliament 21 days beforehand as is convention

The Insolvency Amendment (EU 2015/848) Regulations 2017 were not laid before parliament 21 days beforehand as is convention what gives these amendment regulations force or effect ?

Especially, when private individuals are being made bankrupt unlawful without due process of law and deputy district judges within the (local) county court that now covers the whole of England and Wales are satisfied that the EC/EU regulation does apply under Artice 3 as main proceeding and are thereby treating "customers who are not businesses" of district council billing authorites ( also sometimes now re-styled as "boroughs" ) as having a cross border element that does not exist. And the chancery division of the high court (English Law equity court ) completely ignoring any wrong doing as without merit.

Yours faithfully,

Dear Ms Williams

 

 

Freedom of Information Request F18-131

 

Thank you for your request for information, copied below. You asked a
question about the Insolvency Amendment (EU 2015/848) Regulations 2017
that we have sought to answer below.

 

As the Insolvency Amendment (EU 2015/848) Regulations 2017 were not laid
before Parliament 21 days beforehand, as is the convention, what gives
these amendment regulations force or effect?

 

This information is held by the House of Commons. These regulations were
made by the Government under powers conferred on them by section 2(2) of
the European Communities Act 1972 (ECA). This empowers HM Government to
make provisions in UK law to give effect to legal rights and obligations
arising from EU membership.

This information is stated in the regulations themselves, which are
published on the Legislation.gov.uk website, at:
[1]https://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/2017.... In
addition, Section 2(2) of the European Communities Act is available at:
[2]http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/1972... .

 

As the information you request is reasonably accessible to you otherwise
than under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA), your request is
refused. In refusing your request the House is applying the exemption set
out in section 21 (1) and (2) (a) of the FOIA.  This is an absolute
exemption and the public interest test does not apply.

 

You refer in your question specifically to the convention that, wherever
possible, a statutory instrument that is subject to the negative procedure
should be laid before parliament at least 21 days before it is to come
into effect. It may help you to know that this is not a formal, or
statutory, time limit. On occasions where the ‘21 day rule’ has not been
met, the Government are, however, expected to give their reasons in the
accompanying Explanatory Memorandum to the instrument.

 

The Explanatory Memorandum that was published with the Insolvency
Amendment (EU 2015/848) Regulations 2017 is available to read at:
[3]http://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/2017/...

 

 

 

You may, if dissatisfied with the handling of your request, complain to
the House of Commons. Alternatively, if you are dissatisfied with the
outcome of your request you may ask the House of Commons to conduct an
internal review of any decision regarding your request.  Complaints or
requests for internal review should be addressed to: Information Rights
and Information Security Service, Research & Information Team, House of
Commons, London SW1A 0AA or [4][House of Commons Administration Committee request email].  Please ensure
that you specify the full reasons for your complaint or internal review
along with any arguments or points that you wish to make.

 

If you remain dissatisfied, you may appeal to the Information Commissioner
at Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire SK9 5AF,
[5]www.ico.gov.uk.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

 

Jean Fessey | Information Rights Officer
Information Rights and Information Security (IRIS) Service | House of
Commons
