Status:

This is the original version (as it was originally enacted).

Saving for Pending Contracts, Legal Proceedings, &c

7(1)All proceedings, legal and other, begun before the appointed day, may be carried on in like manner, as nearly as may be, as if this Act had not been passed, and any such proceeding may be amended in such manner as may appear necessary or proper in order to bring it into conformity with the provisions of this Act, and of any order or scheme made thereunder.

(2)Any cause of action by or against any authority which exists at the appointed day in relation to any functions, liabilities, debts or property transferred by this Act to a council shall not be prejudicially affected by the passing of this Act, but may be prosecuted and enforced by or against the council as successors of the authority from whom the transfer was made.

(3)All contracts, deeds, bonds, agreements, notices, and other instruments affecting any functions, liabilities, debts, or property transferred by this Act and subsisting at the appointed day, shall be of as full force and effect against or in favour of the council to whom the transfer was made, and may be enforced as fully and effectually as if, instead of the authority named in the instrument, the council to whom the transfer was made had been a party thereto.
