Presumption of Death Act 2013

Section 19 Regulations

55.Section 19 provides for regulations made under the Act (see sections 17 and 18 and paragraphs 1, 2 and 6 of Schedule 1) to be made by statutory instrument. With the exception of instruments containing regulations under section 17 or any regulations under section 18 which amend or repeal an Act (including an Act or Measure of the National Assembly for Wales), which are subject to an affirmative resolution procedure, all regulations under the Act which are made by the Secretary of State are made subject to the negative resolution procedure. Regulations made by the Registrar General in relation to the detailed operation of the Register of Presumed Deaths under paragraphs 1 and 2 of Schedule 1, however, are not subject to Parliamentary procedure.
