Detailed Commentary on Sections in Part 6

Annual report

Paragraph 9

661.Paragraph 9 provides that the Assembly Commission must, after each financial year, publish and lay before the Assembly a report on the exercise of its functions during that financial year.

662.The Assembly can flesh out the detail of this duty through Assembly directions under section 27(6). For example, it can direct what the report is to cover, and give directions so that the timetable for the report’s publication and laying before the Assembly ties in with the Assembly’s own audit timetable.
