Greater London Authority Act 1999

Section 406: Transitional and consequential provision

614.Section 406(1) enables a Minister of the Crown to make by Order such incidental, consequential, transitional or supplementary provision as appears to him to be necessary or expedient for the reasons set out in paragraphs (a) to (d), for instance for giving full effect to this Act or for the general purposes or any particular purpose of this Act. For example, the power would be used to set out the transitional financial arrangements to apply to the GLA and functional bodies in 2000-01, because the GLA will not exist until part way through the year.

615.Provisions that may be made by Order under this section include those provisions set out in section 406(2); those include provisions requiring or enabling preliminary steps to be taken by a person or body before the date on which powers conferred by the Act become exercisable by that person or body.
