Enterprise Bill [HL]

Explanatory Notes

Paragraphs 3 & 4 – Deputy Commissioners

66 The Secretary of State may appoint one or more Deputy Commissioner(s), if necessary, to work alongside and share the workload of the Commissioner. If any Deputy Commissioner(s) is appointed, the Commissioner will determine what the Deputy Commissioner(s) will do, as the Commissioner can delegate any functions to the Deputy Commissioner(s). The Commissioner could choose to delegate functions in relation to particular complaints, or could delegate certain functions only - for example, the function of considering complaints but not of publishing reports or providing general advice and information.
