5The Secretary of State may confirm with or without modifications, or refuse to confirm, any byelaw submitted to him for confirmation, and may fix the date on which a byelaw confirmed by him is to come into operation ; and if no date is so fixed the byelaw shall come into operation at the expiration of one month beginning with the day on which it is confirmed.
