London Olympic Games and Paralympic Games Act 2006

Section 20: Regulations: supplemental

54.Subsection (1) sets out in more detail what restrictions and flexibilities will apply to the making of regulations under section 19. For example, the regulations may disapply existing legislation about the control of advertising. In order to ensure consistency with the advertising restrictions in the Town and Country Planning Act 1990, the regulations may apply (with any necessary modifications) to Crown bodies. Subsection (3) requires the Secretary of State to undertake consultation before making any regulations under section 19, including by consulting people who represent interests within the advertising industry, the ODA, LOCOG and others likely to be affected by the regulations.

55.In accordance with subsection (2) the regulations will be subject to the affirmative resolution procedure in Parliament. Subsection (4) prevents the regulations being subject to the process that is applied to hybrid instruments. Very broadly, a hybrid provision is one that has characteristics of both a public and a private provision.
