Joint Committee on Statutory Instruments Sixteenth Report


Memorandum by the Department of the Environment, Transport and the Regions


  The Committee has requested a memorandum on the following point:

    Indicate whether any of the armorial bearings referred to in Article 2 were, at any time in the period from 1 April 1974 to 20 November 1997, borne by any authority other than one specified in column (1) of the table, and if so identify those authorities.

  The authorities in column (1) of the table were all abolished on 1 April 1974 by virtue of section 1(10) of the Local Government Act 1972 (c. 70) and the arms borne by them fell into abeyance on that date. The armorial bearings of those authorities were not borne by any other authority before the coming into force of the above Order. This has been confirmed by the College of Arms.
