(5)The works authorised and the powers conferred by this Act will contribute both to the meeting of the statutory duty mentioned in recital (2) above and to the regeneration of London docklands:

(8)This Act is founded on two Bills, namely, the London Underground Bill deposited in November 1989 and the London Underground (No. 2) Bill deposited in November 1990, which Bills were consolidated, with amendments, into one Bill by the Committee of the House of Commons to which both Bills were referred:

(10)The purposes of this Act cannot be effected without the authority of Parliament:
