Railways and Transport Safety Act 2003

Section 120: Commencement

228.Subsection (3) provides for transitional arrangements to be made if commencement of the Office of Rail Regulation takes place before legislation establishing bankruptcy restrictions orders has come into force. This is relevant because paragraph 2(c) of Schedule 1 allows an Office member to be dismissed if he is the subject of a bankruptcy restrictions order (or an interim order). These new orders are provided for in the Enterprise Act 2002, but the relevant provisions of that Act are not yet in force.
