London Olympic Games and Paralympic Games (Amendment) Act 2011

Territorial application: Wales

19.The amendments to the 2006 Act in sections 1, 2, 3 and 9 apply in Wales because the related provisions of the 2006 Act and the Goods Vehicles (Licensing of Operators) Act 1995 (which is relevant to section 9) also apply in Wales. The sections do not provide the Welsh Ministers with any new powers, but section 2 does alter the type of procedure that Welsh Ministers must follow in making advertising and trading regulations for Wales. At present, advertising and trading regulations for Wales may not be made unless a draft has been laid before and approved by a resolution of the National Assembly for Wales. Section 2 alters this for the second and subsequent regulations if the Welsh Ministers consider that by reason of urgency it is necessary that they be made without being approved in draft. In such a case they will be subject to annulment by resolution of the National Assembly for Wales after they have been made by Welsh Ministers. The first advertising and trading regulations will remain subject to the affirmative resolution procedure.

20.Sections 1, 2, 3 and 9 do not relate to matters in Wales within the legislative competence of the National Assembly for Wales which require a legislative consent motion in the Assembly.
