Part IGeneral Provisions

1In this Schedule “the repealed enactments” means the enactments repealed or revoked by this Act.

2(1)The substitution of this Act for the repealed enactments does not affect the continuity of the law.

(2)Anything done or having effect as if done under or for the purposes of a provision of the repealed enactments has effect, if it could have been done under or for the purposes of the corresponding provision of this Act, as if done under or for the purposes of that corresponding provision.

(3)Any reference, whether express or implied, in this Act or any other enactment, instrument or document to a provision of this Act shall, so far as the context permits, be construed as including, in relation to the times, circumstances and purposes in relation to which the corresponding provision of the repealed enactments has effect, a reference to that corresponding provision.

(4)Any reference, whether express or implied, in any enactment, instrument or document to a provision of the repealed enactments shall be construed, so far as is required for continuing its effect, as including a reference to the corresponding provision of this Act.

3Where—

(a)this Act repeals an enactment relating to the coming into force of another provision, including—

(i)an enactment deeming a provision always to have had effect, or to have had effect from a date earlier than that which would otherwise apply, or enabling regulations or an order made under a provision to be framed so as to have such an effect, and

(ii)an enactment conferring power by regulations to provide or make savings in preparation for or in connection with the coming into force of a provision, and

(b)the effect of that provision is reproduced in this Act,

the repeal does not affect the operation of that enactment, in so far as it is not specifically reproduced in this Act but remains capable of having effect, in relation to the corresponding provision of this Act.

4(1)The repeal or revocation by this Act of an enactment previously repealed or revoked subject to savings does not affect the continued operation of those savings.

(2)The repeal or revocation by this Act of a saving to which a previous repeal or revocation of an enactment is subject does not affect the operation of the saving in so far as it is not specifically reproduced in this Act but remains capable of having effect.

5The repeal or revocation by this Act of an enactment which has effect as respects any provision of the repealed enactments (being a provision which is not reproduced in this Act but continues in effect by virtue of this Schedule or the [1978 c. 30.] Interpretation Act 1978) does not affect its operation as respects that provision.

6Any document made, served or issued after this Act comes into force which contains a reference to any of the repealed enactments shall be construed, except so far as a contrary intention appears, as referring or, as the context may require, including a reference to the corresponding provision of this Act.
