Scrutiny of Acts and Regulations Committee
The Committee’s major areas of responsibility include:
- scrutiny of bills introduced into Parliament
- scrutiny of regulations
- review of redundant, unclear or ambiguous legislation.
The Committee also receives references from Parliament or by Governor-in-Council Order.
The committee examines every Bill that is introduced into either House of the Parliament. Depending on the contents of a bill the committee may comment or seek clarification from the Minister or Member on the provisions and report these to the Parliament in a report known as an Alert Digest.
