2. Certain functions of the Minister of Housing and Local Government were transferred to the Secretary of State for Wales by the Secretary of State for Wales and Minister of Land and Natural Resources Order 1965 (S.I. 1965/319, Article 2(1), Schedule 1) and the remaining functions of that Minister were transferred to the Secretary of State by the Secretary of State for the Environment Order 1970 (S.I. 1970/1681, Article 2(1)). References to “the Minister” and “the appropriate Minister” in the Clean Air Acts 1956 and 1968 are therefore reproduced in the Bill as references to the Secretary of State.

3. Fines for summary offences under the enactments being consolidated (other than fines relating to continuing offences) were increased by the Criminal Justice Act 1982 (c. 48) section 38(6), (8) and (9) and section 289F of the Criminal Procedure (Scotland) Act 1975 (c. 21). In relation to summary offences all references in the enactments being consolidated to fines of specified amounts (other than those relating to continuing offences) were converted by section 46(1) of the Criminal Justice Act 1982 and section 289G(4) of the Criminal Procedure (Scotland) Act 1975 to references to fines at the corresponding level on the standard scale of fines for summary offences introduced by section 37 of the Criminal Justice Act 1982 and section 289G of the Criminal Procedure (Scotland) Act 1975. All references in the Bill to a fine of a specified level on the standard scale are derived from the operation of the enactments mentioned above.
