Explanatory Memorandum

Financial Provisions Act (Northern Ireland) 2014

2014 CHAPTER 6

28 April 2014

Options Considered

6.The options available were either for the responsible Departments to take the provisions forward through their own Acts or to add the provisions to some other suitable legislative vehicle. It was concluded that the provisions would not justify separate Acts and the most appropriate method of dealing with the provisions was through the Financial Provisions Act promoted by the Department of Finance and Personnel.
