37(1)This paragraph applies to a country which immediately before commencement was not a dependent territory within the meaning of paragraph 36 above but—E+W+S+N.I.

(a)was a country to which the 1956 Act extended, or

(b)was treated as such a country by virtue of paragraph 39(2) of Schedule 7 to that Act (countries to which the 1911 Act extended or was treated as extending);

(2)A country to which this paragraph applies shall be treated as a country to which Part I extends for the purposes of sections 154 to 156 (qualification for copyright protection) until—

(a)an Order in Council is made in respect of that country under section 159 (application of Part I to countries to which it does not extend), or

(b)an Order in Council is made declaring that it shall cease to be so treated by reason of the fact that the provisions of the 1956 Act or, as the case may be, the 1911 Act, which extended there as part of the law of that country have been repealed or amended.

(3)A statutory instrument containing an Order in Council under this paragraph shall be subject to annulment in pursuance of a resolution of either House of Parliament.
