In November 2014, Cabinet agreed that the 2001 Legislation Advisory Committee Guidelines: Guidelines on Process and Content of Legislation (the 2001 LAC Guidelines) be replaced with a revised set of Guidelines (the 2014 LAC Guidelines) as the government’s key point of reference for assessing whether draft legislation conforms to accepted legal and constitutional principles.
This circular provides further guidance relevant to the 2014 LAC Guidelines.
This circular outlines what disclosure will be required during the initial administrative period of legislation development. Ministers and Chief Executives should ensure that all staff involved in the preparation of legislation are familiar with the advice in this circular.
This circular sets out guidance agreed to by Cabinet for Ministers and officials dealing with inside information relating to public issuers, including mixed ownership model companies and other companies in which the Crown has an ownership stake. Please note, this circular replaces Cabinet Office Circular CO (02) 14, Guidance for Dealing with Information Relating to Publicly Listed Companies.
This circular outlines the role of the Remuneration Authority in relation to setting the remuneration for a number of individuals appointed to statutory bodies and other positions, and the processes that it follows.
To facilitate the process of setting remuneration for these positions, it also sets out the information that the Remuneration Authority requires from Ministers, and from departments responsible for managing the processes for appointment to those positions.
