Police and Justice Act 2006

Section 51: Power to make consequential amendments and transitional provisions etc

392.This section enables the Secretary of State by order to make supplementary, incidental, consequential, transitional or saving provision. The power conferred by this section differs from the power provided in section 49(3) in that it is exercisable independently of any other power to make orders or regulations under the Act. It is effectively a power to make consequential provisions at any time, including amendments to primary and secondary legislation. The Scottish Ministers have corresponding powers in relation to any provision of the Act that is within the legislative competence of the Scottish Parliament.
