Section 151 – interim manager

408.This section gives the regulator power to appoint an interim manager during a moratorium. The appointment of an interim manager comes to an end at the end of the moratorium, on a date specified in the appointment, or on the agreement of proposals under section 152. Proposals themselves may provide for the appointment of a manager under section 155.

409.Subsection (5) provides that an interim manager shall have any power specified in the appointment, and any other power in relation to the registered provider’s affairs required by the manager for the purposes specified in the appointment. However, subsection (6) provides that an interim manager’s powers are more limited than those of a manager appointed under section 155; an interim manager may not dispose of land or grant security over land.

Impact Assessments

Impact Assessments generally accompany all UK Government interventions of a regulatory nature that affect the private sector, civil society organisations and public services. They apply regardless of whether the regulation originates from a domestic or international source and can accompany primary (Acts etc) and secondary legislation (SIs). An Impact Assessment allows those with an interest in the policy area to understand:

  • Why the government is proposing to intervene;
  • The main options the government is considering, and which one is preferred;
  • How and to what extent new policies may impact on them; and,
  • The estimated costs and benefits of proposed measures.
