It also includes provision preventing the designation of a body if it is funded solely from the Scottish Consolidated Fund, the Consolidated Fund of Northern Ireland or the Welsh Consolidated Fund and makes consequential amendments to the GRAA 2000. Section 44 amends the Government of Wales Act 2006 to make corresponding provision in relation to Wales.
