Constitutional Reform and Governance Act 2010

Section 36: Further functions of the IPSA and Commissioner

212.This section repeals section 11 of the 2009 Act which would permit the IPSA to take over the functions of the non-statutory Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards (the “Standards Commissioner”) concerning registers held by the Standards Commissioner, for example, the Register of Interests of Members’ Secretaries and Research Assistants. Section 11 would also have permitted the Commissioner for Parliamentary Investigations to take over functions of the Standards Commissioner. The repeal is consequential upon the repeal of section 8 of the 2009 Act and the removal of the office of the Commissioner for Parliamentary Investigations.
