Section 53 – Consequential etc amendments
92.It is recognised that any Measure concerned with health and social care must accommodate itself within an existing (and often complex) legislative scheme which is set out in a raft of Acts of Parliament. It is further recognised that this legislative landscape will also change over time as further Measures or Acts are made. The power at section 49(2) provides for consequential amendments to other legislation which may arise through the operation of this Measure. The power is limited as it can only be used in relation to consequential amendments in relation to the Measure or to give full effect to it. The power cannot be used for other purposes.
