Water Act 2003

110. .Section 36: Transfer to Authority and Council of functions, property etc.

This section (along with Schedule 3) transfers the functions of the Director to the Authority and effectively removes all references in the Water Industry Act to the Director General of Water Services (or “the Director”), and replaces them with Water Services Regulation Authority (or “the Authority”). It also allows the Secretary of State to make transfer schemes for the transfer of property, rights and liabilities from the Director to the Authority or to the Council.
