Section 321 – Consequential amendments and repeals

907.Section 321 gives the Secretary of State power by order to make supplementary, incidental or consequential provision including power to amend, repeal or revoke any provision made by or under an enactment. Subsection (4) gives the Welsh Ministers a separate power to make supplementary, incidental or consequential provision in relation to matters where functions are exercised by the Welsh Ministers. The result is that the Secretary of State and the Welsh Ministers each have their own separate power in relation to matters where functions are exercised by the Welsh Ministers. This section also introduces Schedule 16.

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.
