This section lists the changes and effects yet to be applied to the whole Act, associated Parts and Chapters where applicable.

This section lists the commencement orders yet to be applied to the whole Act. These effects are included in this view as they may be (but won’t necessarily be) relevant to the specific provision that you are viewing. Where applicable the commencement orders are listed under two headings, firstly those that bring some part of the Act you are viewing into force and secondly, those that bring into force legislation that affects some part of the legislation you are viewing. If you are viewing a prospective version or there is a prospective version available there may be commencement orders listed here that are relevant to the provision you are viewing.
Commencement Orders bringing legislation that affects this Act into force:
(1)No determination or order made in relation to a certified contract on—
(a)an application for judicial review, or
(b)an audit review,
shall affect the enforceability of any relevant discharge terms relating to the contract.
(2)In this section and section 7 “relevant discharge terms”, in relation to a contract entered into by a local authority, means terms—
(a)which have been agreed by the local authority and any person with whom the local authority entered into the contract,
(b)which either form part of the contract or constitute or form part of another agreement entered into by them not later than the day on which the contract was entered into, and
(c)which provide for a consequence mentioned in subsection (3) to ensue in the event of the making of a determination or order in relation to the contract on an application for judicial review or an audit review.
(3)Those consequences are—
(a)the payment of compensatory damages (measured by reference to loss incurred or loss of profits or to any other circumstances) by one of the parties to the other,
(b)the adjustment between the parties of rights and liabilities relating to any assets or goods provided or made available under the contract, or
(c)both of those things.
(4)Where a local authority has agreed relevant discharge terms with any person with whom it has entered into a contract and the contract is a certified contract, the relevant discharge terms shall have effect (and be deemed always to have had effect) as if the local authority had had power to agree them (and had exercised that power properly in agreeing them).
Annotations are used to give authority for changes and other effects on the legislation you are viewing and to convey editorial information. They appear at the foot of the relevant provision or under the associated heading. Annotations are categorised by annotation type, such as F-notes for textual amendments and I-notes for commencement information (a full list can be found in the Editorial Practice Guide). Each annotation is identified by a sequential reference number. For F-notes, M-notes and X-notes, the number also appears in bold superscript at the relevant location in the text. All annotations contain links to the affecting legislation.
