Policing and Crime Act 2009

Section 112: Minor and consequential amendments and repeals and revocations

588.Section 112 confers a power on the Secretary of State by order to make supplementary, incidental or consequential provision for the purposes of the Act. The power includes a power to amend or repeal any Act or subordinate legislation including the Act (subsection (5)). The power also includes power to make transitional, transitory or saving provision.

589.The affirmative resolution procedure will apply to any order which amends or repeals public general Acts save for those provisions inserted into a public general Act by a local Act or any other Act which is not a public general Act. Amongst other uses, it is intended that the Secretary of State will exercise this power in order to repeal paragraph 3A of Schedule 3 to the Local Government (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1982, as inserted in relation to certain London boroughs by section 12 of the Greater London Council (General Provisions) Act 1986, in its entirety. This is because the sex encounter establishment category which that paragraph creates will be replaced by the sexual entertainment venue category introduced by section 27 of this Act.

590.The section also introduces Schedule 7 (minor and consequential amendments) and Schedule 8 (repeals).

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.
