Consultations & legislation
Government departments are required to submit memoranda to the relevant Commons departmental select committee reporting on key elements of any new Act's implementation and operation.
Such a memorandum must be submitted 3-5 years after the Act has received Royal Assent.
These post-legislative assessments are approved by Treasury Ministers and laid before Parliament as Command Papers.
