Sections 117 and 120: Removal of NCIS and NCS members (other than the Directors General)

360.Sections 7 and 53 of the Police Act 1997 enable the NCIS and NCS Service Authorities, respectively to remove their Director General. Sections 9(10) and 55(10) of that Act apply sections 7 and 53, to give the Service Authorities equivalent powers in relation to other members of the NCIS/NCS (except those appointed by the Directors General under section 9(8) or 55(8)). Sections 7 and 53 are repealed by the Act and replaced with the provision made by sections 118 and 121. Accordingly, sections 9(10) and 55(10) can no longer operate by reference to those sections. Sections 117 and 120 insert two new sections into the 1997 Act (sections 9A and 55A) to make provision equivalent to that previously made by sections 9(10) and 55(10). Sections 9(10) and 55(10) are consequently repealed by the Act.
