Section 43: Codes of practice: procedure
128.This section sets out the procedure for issuing and revising any codes of practice. The Lord Chancellor will have to consult the National Assembly for Wales and other appropriate persons before preparing or revising a code. Draft codes will have to be laid before both Houses of Parliament for 40 days. They may then be issued, provided that neither House has resolved to reject the draft. The Lord Chancellor must arrange for the code to be brought to the attention of people who may need to know about it.
