547.Section 110 makes amendments consequential on sections 108 and 109, mainly amending the references to the repealed section 240 of the 2003 Act so as refer to section 240ZA instead.

548.Subsection (8) amends section 243 of the 2003 Act in relation to persons extradited to the United Kingdom. For those persons who qualify under section 243 of the 2003 Act, the changes provide for all days remanded in custody in another jurisdiction while awaiting extradition to the United Kingdom to be counted against a subsequent sentence imposed.

549.Subsection (13) gives effect to Schedule 13, Part 1 of which replicates in the Armed Forces Act 2006 the effect of the provisions in section 108 for the crediting of remand time towards a subsequent sentence. This ensures the same provisions are applied in respect of sentences imposed under Armed Forces legislation. Part 2 of Schedule 13 makes consequential amendments to other Acts.
