Now, therefore, we, the Lords Commissioners of Her Majesty's Treasury, in pursuance of the said Act, and of all other powers in that behalf, do hereby, with the concurrence of the Lord Chancellor and of the Speaker of the House of Commons, make the following Regulations:
1. Every exercise of a Statutory power by a Rule-making authority, which is of a legislative and not an executive character, shall be held to be a Statutory Rule within section 3 of the Act and these Regulations.
2. An exercise of a Statutory power which is confirmed only by a Rule-making authority shall not be held to be a Statutory Rule within section 3 of the Act or these Regulations.
3. Except as mentioned in Regulation 2, the volumes of Statutory Rules and Orders published by the Stationery Office in 1890, 1891, and 1892 shall form a practical guide for determining those exercises of Statutory powers which should be treated as Statutory Rules within section 3 of the Act and these Regulations.
4. A distinction shall be drawn between Statutory Rules which are general and those which are local and personal.
5. The distinction shall follow, unless in exceptional circumstances, that adopted between public Acts and local and personal Acts of Parliament.
6. All Statutory Rules when sent to the Queen's printer of Acts of Parliament, as required by the Act, shall be numbered consecutively as nearly as may be in the order in which they are received by the Queen's printer, and either with or without a second number for a particular class of rules.
7. The main series of numbers shall be a separate series for each calendar year, but Statutory Rules made in December in any year, and received by the Queen's printer of Acts of Parliament within fourteen days after the end of that year, may be numbered with the Statutory Rules of that year and included in the annual volume of that year.
8. All Statutory Rules shall be printed and sold, unless, in the case of Rules not required to be published in any Gazette, the Rule-making authority declare that it is unnecessary to print and sell them, and such declaration is not overruled on a reference under Regulation 15.
9. Statutory Rules similar to public general Acts shall be printed in an annual volume, and that volume shall include a list of the Statutory Rules which are similar to local and personal Acts.
10. The Rule-making authority in sending any Statutory Rule to the Queen's printer of Acts of Parliament shall state whether they consider the Rule to be general or local and personal, and that statement shall be followed unless overruled on a reference under Regulation 15.
11. In the annual volume of Statutory Rules the general Rules shall be published in a classified form, as in the volumes mentioned above in Regulation 3, which have been hitherto published.
12. Regulations 6 and 8 shall apply to temporary Statutory Rules, but if they have ceased to be in force at the time of the publication of the annual volume, or will so cease a short time afterwards, they shall not be included in that volume, unless the Rule-making authority inform the Queen's printer of Acts of Parliament that they desire them to be so included.
13. The Treasury, with the concurrence of the Lord Chancellor and the Speaker of the House of Commons, may direct the exclusion from publication at length in any annual volume of any Rules which it seems to them unnecessary so to publish by reason of their annual or other periodical renewal; as, for instance, the Militia Regulations, the Volunteer Regulations, or the Education Code.
14. Any Statutory Rule or class of Statutory Rules which, on the application of the Rule-making authority, may be determined by the Treasury, with the concurrence of the Lord Chancellor and the Speaker of the House of Commons, to be confidential, shall be exempted from section 3 of the Act and from these Regulations.
15. Any question which arises under Regulation 8 as to the printing and sale of Statutory Rules, or under Regulation 10 as to Statutory Rules being general or local and personal, or which arises on the application or interpretation of these Regulations, shall be referred to the Treasury, and determined by them with the concurrence of the Lord Chancellor and the Speaker of the House of Commons.
