(4)Parts II and III of Schedule 2 to the principal Act (criteria for dividing Great Britain into European Parliamentary constituencies) shall have effect in relation to reports of the Committees and Orders in Council consequent thereon as they have effect in relation to reports of Boundary Commissions and Orders in Council under that Schedule, except that for the definition of “enumeration date” in Part III there shall be substituted—

(5)For the purposes of the principal Act, an Order in Council which has been made under Part II of the Schedule to this Act shall have effect as if it had been made under Schedule 2 to the principal Act.

(6)Any appointment made or other thing done by or in relation to a Committee at a time before the passing of this Act shall be regarded as valid if it would have been valid at that time, had this Act then been in force.
