Care Standards Act 2000, section 119(1) and (2)
Supplementary and consequential provision, etc
(1) The appropriate Minister may by order make
(a) any supplementary, incidental or consequential
(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

any part of the text of an Act; otherwise, negative (section 118)

"With a Bill of this length, dealing with a
wide range of different subjects, a number of supplementary, incidental,
consequential or transitional provisions may be required. It is
likely that some of these matters not currently included in the
Bill will be put forward as amendments to the Bill. However the
nature and extent of some consequential or supplementary requirements,
including the necessary legislative amendments, may not become

considers it appropriate that the power in [section 119] should
extend to amending or repealing other enactments, instruments
Orders under [section 119] will be subject to the

order will amend or repeal an enactment. To include all the necessary
consequential and supplementary provisions in the Bill would lengthen
the Bill, and take up Parliamentary time on consequential and
Note: The Bill provided
originally for all orders made by the Secretary of State under
this provision to be subject to negative procedure only, and included
a reference to documents in subsection (2).
Committee Report (2nd of 1999-00):
"Subsection (2) converts the order-making power
into a Henry VIII power by extending it to allow the amendment
or repeal of "any enactment, instrument or document".
The memorandum does not explain  why the reference to "document"
has been added to a formula which is becoming more common.
The House may wish to consider whether an order
under clause 95(2) should attract the affirmative procedure."
