Commonwealth Development Corporation Act 1999


87.Any Act resulting from the Act will come into force on Royal Assent, but in fact, none of its provisions (except section 23: extra powers for CDC) will have any practical impact until the Secretary of State has determined the filing day under section 1(1). That will trigger the process culminating in registration, and upon registration, the rest of the Act (including, as explained in paragraph 20 above, the repeal of most of the 1978 Act) will take effect.
