Section 99 and Schedule 5 – Minor and consequential amendments
115.Section 99 gives effect to Schedule 5, which contains minor and consequential amendments as a result of the provisions in Parts 2, 3 and 5 of this Act.
116.Amongst other things it amends the Diocesan Board of Education Measure 1991. This is a Church of England Measure. Whilst almost all of Wales is within the boundaries of the Church in Wales, there are some parishes in Powys that form part of dioceses within the Church of England.
117.Amendments to the Church of England Measure could have been made by this Act, by the Secretary of State for Wales under section 150 of the Government of Wales Act 2006, by a UK Act of Parliament or by a Church of England Measure. The Welsh Government sought the views of the Church of England on this matter and obtained the agreement of the Secretary General to the Archbishops' Council to the amendments to be made by this Act.
