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(1)A remedial order may—E+W+S+N.I.
(a)contain such incidental, supplemental, consequential or transitional provision as the person making it considers appropriate;
(b)be made so as to have effect from a date earlier than that on which it is made;
(c)make provision for the delegation of specific functions;
(d)make different provision for different cases.
(2)The power conferred by sub-paragraph (1)(a) includes—
(a)power to amend primary legislation (including primary legislation other than that which contains the incompatible provision); and
(b)power to amend or revoke subordinate legislation (including subordinate legislation other than that which contains the incompatible provision).
(3)A remedial order may be made so as to have the same extent as the legislation which it affects.
(4)No person is to be guilty of an offence solely as a result of the retrospective effect of a remedial order.
