395.Section 146 requires the Welsh Ministers to consult on a draft of any code or revised code and stipulates that, if the Welsh Ministers wish to proceed with the draft code following the consultation, it must be laid before the National Assembly for Wales for 40 days. If the National Assembly resolves not to approve the draft code, it cannot be issued. In the absence of such a resolution, the code is published in the same form in which it was laid. The Welsh Ministers may revoke a code in a subsequent code made in accordance with this section or by direction; if a code is revoked by direction then the direction must also be laid before the National Assembly.
