Select Committee on Delegated Powers and Regulatory Reform Third Report


Criminal Justice and Courts Services Act 2000, section 77(1) and (2)

77  Supplementary and consequential provision, etc

(1)  The Lord Chancellor or the Secretary of State may by order make—

(a)  any supplementary, incidental or consequential provision,

(b)  any transitory, transitional or saving provision,

which he considers necessary or expedient for the purposes of, in consequence of or for giving full effect to any provision of this Act.

(2)  The provision which may be made under subsection (1) includes provision amending or repealing any enactment, instrument or document.

Note: section 78(1) limits "enactments" contained in Acts to those in Acts passed before or in the same session.

Parliamentary procedure: affirmative, if the order adds to, replaces or omits any part of the text of an Act; otherwise negative.

Departmental explanation:

"This power follows normal practice with a Bill of this size and range of scope, so that any necessary supplementary and transitional provision, not identified at this stage, can be made after the Bill is enacted."

Committee Report (22nd of 1999-2000): The Committee made no comment on this provision.
