This is the original version (as it was originally enacted).
(1)If it appears to the Ministers that it is necessary or expedient that the Potato Marketing Scheme should be brought to an end, they may by order specify a day as the first day of the period mentioned in section 26(2) below.
(2)Until a decision has been made by the Council of the European Communities to introduce a regulation on the establishment of a common organisation of the market in potatoes, subsection (1) above shall have effect with the substitution for “expedient” of “in the public interest”.
(3)Where subsection (2) above applies, no order shall be made under subsection (1) above unless the Ministers have consulted on a proposal to bring the Potato Marketing Scheme to an end with such persons appearing to them to be representative of the interests of producers, purchasers, retailers and consumers of potatoes as they consider appropriate.
(4)If the Ministers certify that they are of the opinion that it is necessary that the Potato Marketing Scheme should be brought to an end because its continued existence is inconsistent with a regulation of the Council of the European Communities, section 62(4) below shall apply as if the references therein to sections of this Act included a reference to this section.
(5)Where an order under this section is contained in a statutory instrument which is subject to annulment in pursuance of a resolution of either House of Parliament, then, if the instrument is annulled in pursuance of such a resolution, the order shall be treated for the purposes of this Part of this Act as never having been made.
(6)Subject to subsection (4) above, no order shall be made under this section unless a draft of it has been laid before, and approved by a resolution of, each House of Parliament.
