876.This paragraph provides that the power to use resources or to have cash paid out of the Welsh Consolidated Fund for an emergency situation (any such amounts not having been approved under a Budget resolution), applies to the old Assembly until the first First Minister is appointed under the Act . Paragraph 62 limits to £50 million the total amount that can be used during that period. The overall ceiling for the financial year, set down in section 128, still applies.
