Report on the Implementation of Law Commission Proposals: March 2012

HC 1900

Ministry of Justice

'Report on the Implementation of Law Commission Proposals: March 2012 (HC 1900)' is the second annual report which examines the implementation of Law Commission proposals by the Government.

The Government's focus on dealing with the economic situation has meant that proposals not seen as requiring immediate action have been delayed. Two uncontroversial changes have proceeded under the new House of Lords procedure introduced by the Law Commission Act 2009, resulting in the Consumer Insurance (Disclosure and Representations) Act 2012 and the Trusts (Capital and Income) Bill.

The Commission's proposals regarding the forfeiture rule and the law of succession have also been implemented through the Estates of Deceased Persons (Forfeiture Rule and Law of Succession) Act 2011 which came into force on 1 February 2012.

The Government has decided not to implement two proposals: intoxication and criminal liability; and the illegality defence. The report explains its reasoning for those decisions, as well as detailing the situation of 18 further proposals which have not yet been implemented.
