Section 31: Section 28(2) (b): appropriateness of making provision for review

226.This section concerns the circumstances in which a Minister may publish a statement that a review would not be appropriate under subsection (2)(b) of section 28.

227.Subsection (2) provides two examples of such circumstances: where a review would be disproportionate (for example where the impacts associated with the measure are very small); or where there are specific policy reasons (for example an exceptionally high need for long term certainty). This is not an exhaustive list: there may be other grounds on which Ministers could decide that a review was not appropriate. Subsection (3) provides a power for the Secretary of State to publish guidance on the factors to be taken into account when determining that a review would not be appropriate. Subsection (4) requires Ministers to have regard to the guidance when making such a determination.
