Government of Wales Act 2006

Paragraph 56: Destination of receipts

870.This paragraph provides that section 120 (which governs which sums need to be paid into the Welsh Consolidated Fund and which do not) has effect, until the first First Minister is appointed under the Act , as if references to the Welsh Ministers etc. and to the Assembly Commission were references to the old Assembly. It also allows the old Assembly to make the initial decision as to which receipts can be retained, rather than paid into the Welsh Consolidated Fund.
