Section 77: Cancellation of designation: further provision

200.This section allows consequential provision to be made by the Lord Chancellor where the designation of a licensing authority is cancelled. Two types of order are possible. The first, under section 77(2), enables legislation etc to be modified to take account of the cancellation. The second, under section 77(3), allows arrangements to be made transferring licensed bodies from the regulation of the original licensing authority to another that consents to act as their licensing authority. Such arrangements must include provision for placing the transferred bodies under the “new” licensing authority’s rules (section 77(6)(a)) and may include provisions for transferring licensing fees to the new authority (section 77(6)(b)). Section 77(8) provides that the Lord Chancellor may only make an order under this section on the recommendation of the Board, and only one that is materially the same as the order drafted by the Board.
