      Good afternoon:

      Civil Registration Regulatory Reform (Registration of Births and Deaths)
      Order 2004

      The House of Commons report of the Regulatory Reform Committee (149 pages)
      was published on December 20, 2004.

      www.publications.parliament.uk/pa/cm/cmdereg.htm

      The House of Lords report of the Delegated Powers and Regulatory Reform
      Committee (53 pages) was published on December 14, 2004.

      Extracts from the reports, detailing the points relevant to family
      historians can be found on the website of the Federation of Family History
      Societies at:

      www.ffhs.org.uk

      The above information was obtained from the March 2005 edition of "The
      Yorkshire Family Historian." This is one of the exchange journals available
      at the AFHS library.

      An additional comment in the YFH is:

      The Committee's conclusion was "That the order-making power under the
      Regulatory Reform Act 2001 should not be used in respect of these
      proposals." It would seem, therefore, that the government's plans to reform
      the registration of births, marriages and deaths has been put on ice. This
      may also mean that planned restrictions to access of later records may also
      be delayed.
