Paragraph 50 and 51: Orders in Council amending Schedule 5

865.These paragraphs provide for sections 95 and 96 to have effect with modifications until the beginning of the day after the day in which a First Minister is appointed. Sections 95 and 96 come into force on Royal Assent, in order to allow Schedule 5 (and therefore the Assembly’s legislative competence to pass Assembly Measures) to be modified between Royal Assent and the Act coming fully into effect in May 2007. The modifications which this paragraph applies are necessary to allow sections 95 and 96 to operate in advance of May 2007.
