ORR criticism of Legislative and Regulatory Reform Bill

ORR letter (1 page, PDF) expressing concerns about the powers to make law by ministerial order proposed by the Legislative and Regulatory Reform Bill. ORR is worried that this might give excessive "scope for Ministers to make fundamental changes to the functions of an independent economic regulator or to the structure of regulation" and thereby lead to undue "uncertainty for private sector companies". ORR has also released its previously confidential concerns (2 pages, PDF) about the better regulation aspects of the Bill.
