Hooray for transparency!

Mr Anderson: To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions which of his Department's regulations are under review; and if he will make a statement.

Chris Grayling: The Department for Work and Pensions is responsible for a wide range of regulations; by necessity the Department is constantly reviewing regulations in relation to delivering its business. Details of those specific regulations currently under review could be provided only at disproportionate cost.
Ironic that a internal regulation controlling the cost of answering questions should be invoked to answer a question on the slashing of regulations init?
