Policing and Crime Act 2009

Section 24AQ Dispute resolution: powers

458.This section sets out the powers of the Secretary of State when determining the settlement of a dispute. The Secretary of State has powers in relation to determining both the contents of an ASP as well as its implementation.

459.Subsection (4) provides the Secretary of State with a power to apportion costs between persons responsible for security measures at the aerodrome. In practice, there may be circumstances where disagreement could arise between members of the SEG in relation to whether or not security stakeholders should make a financial contribution in respect of a security measure (disagreement might, for example, arise about who should pay for installation of a security system such as CCTV). Where appropriate, this power would permit the Secretary of State to determine that a security stakeholder should make a financial contribution to the project. Any such determination could be the subject of an appeal as provided for in section 24AR.

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.
