Transfer of functions

2.—(1) The functions exercisable by the Authority immediately before the appointed day under any statutory provision, shall as from that day be exercisable by the Board.

(2) Sub-paragraph (1) applies only to provisions which have continuing effect.

Transfer of assets and liabilities

3.—(1) All property, rights and liabilities to which the Authority is entitled or subject immediately before the appointed day shall on that day be transferred to, and by virtue of this paragraph vest in, the Board.

(2) Sub-paragraph (1)–

(a)has effect in relation to property, rights or liabilities to which it applies in spite of any provision (of whatever nature) which would prevent or restrict the transfer of the property, rights or liabilities otherwise than by that sub-paragraph; but

(b)does not apply to rights and liabilities under a contract of employment (which are dealt with by paragraph 4).

(3) A certificate issued by the Department that any property, rights or liabilities have been transferred to the Board under this paragraph shall be conclusive evidence of the transfer.

Transfer of employed staff

4.—(1) Subject to sub-paragraphs (2) and (3), this paragraph applies to a person who immediately before the appointed day is employed by the Authority.

(2) This paragraph does not apply to a person if his contract of employment terminates on the day immediately before the appointed day.

(3) Where a person–

(a)has, prior to the appointed day, entered into a contract of employment with the Authority which is to come into effect on or after that day, and

(b)would, if the contract had come into effect before that day, have been a person to whom this paragraph applies,

he shall be treated as if he were a person to whom this paragraph applies.

(4) A contract of employment between a person to whom this paragraph applies and the Authority shall have effect from the appointed day as if originally made between that person and the Board.
