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.

Commencement Orders bringing legislation that affects this Act into force:
(1)The functions of ethical standards officers are to investigate—
(a)cases referred to them by the Standards Board for England under section 58(2), and
(b)other cases in which any such officer considers that a member or co-opted member (or former member or co-opted member) of a relevant authority in England has failed, or may have failed, to comply with the authority’s code of conduct and which have come to the attention of any such officer as a result of an investigation under paragraph (a).
(2)The Standards Board for England may make arrangements in relation to the assignment of investigations under this section to particular ethical standards officers.
(3)The purpose of an investigation under this section is to determine which of the findings mentioned in subsection (4) is appropriate.
(4)Those findings are—
(a)that there is no evidence of any failure to comply with the code of conduct of the relevant authority concerned,
(b)that no action needs to be taken in respect of the matters which are the subject of the investigation,
(c)that the matters which are the subject of the investigation should be referred to the monitoring officer of the relevant authority concerned, or
(d)that the matters which are the subject of the investigation should be referred to the president of the Adjudication Panel for England for adjudication by a tribunal falling within section 76(1).
(5)Where a person is no longer a member or co-opted member of the relevant authority concerned but is a member or co-opted member of another relevant authority in England, the reference in subsection (4)(c) to the monitoring officer of the relevant authority concerned is to be treated as a reference either to the monitoring officer of the relevant authority concerned or to the monitoring officer of that other relevant authority (and accordingly an ethical standards officer who reaches a finding under subsectio (4)(c) must decide to which of those monitoring officers to refer the matters concerned).
