Question for Home Office

UIN 54519, tabled on 23 November 2016

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, with reference to section 18 of the Scrap Metal Dealers Act 2013, when she plans to publish the Government's review of that Act

Answered on

2 December 2016

The Government intends to commence the review of the Scrap Metal Dealers Act 2013 very shortly and will publish the outcomes of the review in 2017.

This is earlier than required by section 18 of the Scrap Metal Dealers Act which said that the review should be undertaken and its finding published no later than 30 September 2018. We consulted with key partners and it was considered that there was sufficient evidence available about the working of the Act to undertake the review now.
