Flood and Water Management Act 2010

Application of general administration law

358.Paragraph 6 replaces section 23(3) of, and Schedule 3 to, the Water Industry Act 1991. It applies Schedule B1 to the Insolvency Act 1986 (as inserted by the Enterprise Act 2002) to the special administration regime in place of older insolvency legislation that was generally replaced by Schedule B1, but preserved by the Enterprise Act 2002 for the purposes of the special administration regime. It also provides that the Secretary of State, with the consent of the Welsh Ministers, may make regulations to apply, disapply or modify Schedule B1, other Insolvency Act 1986 provisions and other relevant insolvency legislation for the purposes of the special administration regime.
