62Regulations, orders and local enactments

(1)Any power conferred by this Act on the Secretary of State to make regulations or orders shall be exercisable by statutory instrument.

(2)All statutory instruments containing regulations made under this Act, and all statutory instruments containing orders referred to in subsection (3) below, shall be subject to annulment in pursuance of a resolution of either House of Parliament.

(3)The orders concerned are orders made under section 13 of this Act determining the area of a Health Board, orders made under subsection (3) of that section and orders made under sections 25, 26(3), 27(5), 31 to 35, 37(2), 38(2) and 39(2) of this Act and under subsections (8) and (9) of this section.

(4)Any power under this Act to make regulations or orders may be exercised—

(a)either in relation to all cases to which the power extends, or in relation to those cases subject to exceptions, or in relation to any particular case or cases, and

(b)subject to such other exceptions or conditions as the Secretary of State thinks fit, and shall include power to make such incidental or supplementary provision as appears to the Secretary of State to be expedient.

(5)Any power to make regulations under this Act shall, if the Treasury so direct, not be exercisable except in conjunction with the Treasury.

(6)Any order under this Act may be varied or revoked by a subsequent order made in the like manner and subject to the same provisions.

(7)Subject to subsection (8) below, where any local enactment provides for any matter which is also provided for by any provision of this Act or of any order or regulations made thereunder, the provisions of this Act, or, as the case may be, of that order or those regulations, shall have effect in substitution for the local enactment, which shall cease to have effect.

(8)The Secretary of State may by order except from the operation of subsection (7) above such local enactments as may be specified in the order and direct that the corresponding provisions of this Act or of any order or regulations made thereunder, as may be so specified, shall not have effect in the areas in which the specified local enactments have effect.

(9)If it appears to the Secretary of State that any local enactment, not being an enactment which has ceased to have effect by virtue of subsection (7) above, is inconsistent with any provision of this Act or of any order or regulations made thereunder, or is no longer required, or requires to be amended, having regard to any provision of this Act or of any order or regulations made thereunder, he may by order repeal or amend the local enactment as he may consider appropriate.
