Commencement Orders listed in the ‘Changes to Legislation’ box as not yet applied may bring this prospective version into force.
Note: Point in time prospective is the latest available view of the legislation that includes by default all the prospective changes that might come into force.
There are outstanding changes not yet made by the legislation.gov.uk editorial team to London Olympic Games and Paralympic Games Act 2006. Any changes that have already been made by the team appear in the content and are referenced with annotations.
