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:
In section 7 of the Health and Medicines Act 1988 (c. 49) (additional powers for financing Health Service), after subsection (7) there shall be inserted—
“(7A)The power specified in paragraph (g) of subsection (2) above includes power for the Secretary of State—
(a)to form, or participate in the forming of, companies,
(b)to invest in companies (whether by acquiring assets, securities or rights or otherwise), and
(c)to provide loans and guarantees and make other kinds of financial provision to or in respect of companies,

(a)the generality of paragraph (g) of subsection (2) above, and
(b)any powers of the Secretary of State exercisable otherwise than by virtue of this section.”
