(2)After an instrument is made in accordance with sub-paragraph (1), the Welsh Ministers must lay it before the National Assembly for Wales along with a statement explaining the circumstances of the urgency and why, in the Welsh Ministers’ opinion, it was necessary to make the regulations without a draft being laid and approved.
