146.Section 35 gives the Secretary of State a power, by order subject to affirmative resolution of both Houses, to modify the provisions of sections 2, 11, 12 and 13 and their related Schedules on the constitution of the NDA and the process for approving the NDA’s strategy and annual plans. It provides the flexibility to make any amendments to those provisions which might be necessary or desirable without having to secure the Parliamentary time needed for primary legislation.
