Deregulation Act 2015

Industry Act 1972 and Aircraft and Shipbuilding Industries Act 1977

904.Paragraphs 7 to 9 in Part 2 of this Schedule repeal redundant legislation related to the former nationalised aircraft and shipbuilding industries.

905.Paragraph 7 repeals a saving provision in Schedule 3 to the Industry Act 1972 that currently saves an order containing redundant provisions related to the dissolution of the Shipbuilding Industry Board. The repeal, like Schedule 3 to the 1972 Act, forms part of the law of England and Wales and Scotland.

906.Paragraph 8 repeals the Aircraft and Shipbuilding Industries Act 1977 and the repeal, like the Act, forms part of the law of England and Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. Since the abolition of British Shipbuilders in 2013, the remaining provisions of the Aircraft and Shipbuilding Industries Act 1977 contain only redundant provisions related to the historic vesting of assets in British Aerospace. Paragraph 9 makes minor amendments consequential on the repeal in paragraph 8.

907.Paragraphs 7 to 9 come into force at the end of the period of 2 months beginning with the day on which the Act is passed.

Impact Assessments

Impact Assessments generally accompany all UK Government interventions of a regulatory nature that affect the private sector, civil society organisations and public services. They apply regardless of whether the regulation originates from a domestic or international source and can accompany primary (Acts etc) and secondary legislation (SIs). An Impact Assessment allows those with an interest in the policy area to understand:

  • Why the government is proposing to intervene;
  • The main options the government is considering, and which one is preferred;
  • How and to what extent new policies may impact on them; and,
  • The estimated costs and benefits of proposed measures.
