Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Order)

The Secretary of State granted to National Transcommunications Limited a licence on 14 February 1996 under section 7 of the Telecommunications Act 1984 to run the telecommunication systems specified in that licence in the United Kingdom. A copy of the licence was laid before Parliament on 28th June 1996. This Order designates those telecommunication systems as public telecommunication systems. Consequently, by virtue of section 9(3) of that Act, National Transcommunications Limited will be a public telecommunications operator when the Order comes into force on 27th July 1996.

A copy of the licence may be obtained from the Office of Telecommunications, 50 Ludgate Hill, London, EC4M 7JJ.
