Commissioner for Older People (Wales) Act 2006

Section 15: Reports following discharge of particular functions

41.Subsections (1) and (2) enable the Assembly to make regulations providing for the making by the Commissioner of reports following the exercise of any of his functions, except those of considering and making representations to the Assembly (section 2(3)) and of undertaking research and educational activities (section 9) to the extent that they are exercised in a field in which the Assembly does not have functions.  Subsection (3) provides that such regulations may stipulate the contents of a report, the publication of a report, who should receive copies, and any further action that must or may be taken by the Commissioner after making the report.  The regulations may also stipulate that the Commissioner may make a joint report with the Children’s Commissioner for Wales where they have each discharged their respective functions in relation to the same matter.  Subsections (4) and (5) prohibit the Commissioner from naming any person, or including any particulars identifying any person, which can be omitted without impeding the report’s effectiveness, unless he considers it to be in the public interest to do so.
