Section 21: Pre-commencement invitations etc

91.This section introduces the concept of a “pre-commencement invitation” and provides that it is immaterial if the Secretary of State issues such an invitation or guidance prior to commencement of this Chapter. Further, that it is immaterial if he consults, prior to commencement, on any proposal received in response to a pre-commencement invitation. This means that any invitations and proposals that have been made and any consultation that has been carried out, at any time before commencement of Chapter 1, (whether before or after Royal Assent), are effective for the purposes of the Chapter. In particular, this means that the Secretary of State will be able to implement, after commencement, proposals received at any time before commencement.
