Local Government Act 2003

Section 24: Wales

40.Part 1 of the Act refers only to the Secretary of State and not also to the National Assembly for Wales. The effect of this section is that functions conferred under Part 1 on the Secretary of State are, in Wales, to be functions of the Assembly (and not functions of the Secretary of State). In section 19 and Schedule 1 this result is achieved by reliance on the concept of “the appropriate person” (defined in section 124).
