Section 60: Power to make amendments

213.Section 60 enables the Secretary of State to make amendments to other legislation (primary and secondary) where, as a consequence of the coming into force of a provision of the Act, he considers it appropriate to do so. Although every attempt has been made to amend or repeal all provisions of other legislation which conflict with, or are inconsistent with, a provision of the Act, such a power would need to be exercised if following Royal Assent it was discovered that the effect of a particular provision had been overlooked. The power might be also be applied to a provision of an Act passed after this Act but before the provision in question comes into force.

214.The exercise of the power is subject to an affirmative resolution in both Houses of Parliament.
