Gov't revokes 92 outdated statutes
Adjust font size:

The Chinese government on Wednesday published a list of 92 government statutes that have been revoked in accordance with a State Council decree signed by Premier Wen Jiabao on January 15.

The State Council recently checked all the 655 statutes that were literally in force and found that 92 of them are no longer effective, according to an official in charge of the Office of the Rule of Law of the cabinet.

These statutes are out of date due to facts that there have been new laws or statutes to replace them, or that they have simply expired, the official noted.

In the near future, he said, the office plans to publish the Collection of Existing Statutes of the People's Republic of China, with certain amendments to contents that are not up to the requirements of the economic and social development.
