This is the original version (as it was originally enacted).

11Default powers of the Privy Council

(1)If it appears to the Privy Council, either in consequence of representations made to them or for any other reason, that the Council or a board has failed either generally or in a particular case to do, or to do satisfactorily, any thing which under this Act that body has power or a duty to do, the Privy Council may if they think fit, subject to subsection (3) of this section, direct that body to do that thing in such manner and within such period as may be specified by the directions; and any such directions shall be enforceable by mandamus on the application of the Privy Council.

(2)Instead of proceeding to enforce such directions by mandamus, the Privy Council may if they think fit—

(a)in the case of directions to a board, order the Council to give effect to the directions; or

(b)in any case, themselves give effect to the directions and recover from the Council as a simple contract debt any expenses certified by them to have been incurred in doing so.

(3)The power to give directions under this section shall not include power to give directions with respect to a board's functions under section three of this Act.

(4)Any expenses of the Privy Council under this section shall be defrayed out of moneys provided by Parliament, and any sums received by the Privy Council under this section shall be paid into the Exchequer.
