Northern Ireland (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 2006

Territorial Extent

23.The Act’s main impact is on Northern Ireland. However, because many of the enactments on which the Act operates extend to the whole of the UK, as a technical matter much of the Act extends to the whole of the UK. The three exceptions are:

  • section 25 (sustainable development), which extends to Northern Ireland only,

  • amendments made by Schedule 3 (extension to Northern Ireland of provisions of SOCAP 2005), which extend to England and Wales and Northern Ireland only, and

  • other provisions amending or repealing enactments which do not extend to the whole of the UK. Those provisions have the same extent as the enactments being amended or repealed.
