Committees seem to have become the most essential part of British decision making. Seems like seriously lots of paperwork and additional remuneration for little effect. Unnecessary legislation usually gets revoked naturally.

It still seems like an awful lot of bureaucracy to get rid of other bureaucracy. It's an aye from me though, generally speaking.

Seems like a silly idea. Once legislation is in force it needs to stay that way.

But does it, in the past what has happened is instead of old legislation which is no longer needed or acts against what the government wants has not been revoked, but a second piece of legislation has been used to cover over it, this has led to a build up of laws which counteract each other, which then inevitably leads to loopholes or just a lot of paper work for people involved in law to sift through.

Change the wording of 1(4) to 'All existing legislation will be eligible for review 10 years from it's commencement.

Delete 1(1)(i) if you have section 3.

Section 4(3) needs amending.

Also if there is no notes section outlining examples of relevant bills and arguments (perhaps news articles) arguing why i won't vote for it. In addition i won't vote for it without proper formatting.

Ah, most of that was bad checking on my part, but 1(4) was changed to what it is, as it was realised that if every bit of regulation was to be reviewed after royal assent it would cause a huge clog in the system, causing this bill to be ineffective.

I somewhat agree with you. That does make a lot of sense. I think we should review each legislation 15 years rather than 10.

I'm all for getting rid of an 'insidious creep'. Then I saw the bit about the PM choosing the Committee and imagined this under a Michael Gove government. More patronage for the PM.
