Paragraph 19: Regulations for constables employed by the Agency

44.This paragraph confers on the Secretary of State a power to make provision, by regulations, about the government, administration and conditions of service of constables employed by the Agency or seconded to it.

45.Sub-paragraph (2) sets out the areas in which the Secretary of State may in particular make provisions through regulations.

46.Sub-paragraph (3) provides that regulations relating to matters of conduct or discipline may also authorise or require provision to be made by, or confer discretionary power on, the Agency, the Agency’s chief executive or other persons, and may also authorise or require the delegation of functions conferred by or under the regulations.

47.Sub-paragraph (4) makes clear that any regulations affecting constables’ pay and allowances can take effect retrospectively on a date specified within the regulations. Retrospective effect will not be possible, however, if there is a reduction in the pay and allowances specified in the regulations.
