Section 5: Power to amend Schedule 1
16.This section enables the list of persons disqualified from membership of the Board to be amended from time to time, in the light of changing circumstances, without the need for an amending Measure.
17.A resolution of the Assembly is required to amend Schedule 1 (by adding or removing an office or person, or by altering the description of such an office or person). Once such a resolution has been passed, subsection (2) provides the legislative means for putting that decision into effect. This is achieved by conferring a power on the Counsel General to give effect to the Assembly’s resolution by the making of an order by statutory instrument. The Counsel General must exercise that power as soon as possible after being notified in writing by the Presiding Officer that the resolution has been passed by the Assembly.
