Legislative and Regulatory Reform Act 2006

Section 31: Consequential amendments

161.Subsection (1) amends section 6(7) of the Deregulation and Contracting Out Act 1994 (‘the 1994 Act’). Section 6(7) of the 1994 Act defined “enforcement action” by reference to section 9 of the 2001 Act. As a consequence of the repeal of section 9 of the 2001 Act, subsection (1) substitutes the definition of “enforcement action” which was in section 9 of the 2001 Act into section 6(7) of the 1994 Act.

162.Subsections (2) and (3) amend respectively section 100 of the Local Government Act 2003 and article 17 of the Deregulation and Contracting Out (Northern Ireland) Order 1996. In each case a reference to section 1 of the 2001 Act is replaced by a reference to section 1 or 2 of this Act.
