A Regulatory Impact Assessment, which involves a compliance cost assessment of the effect which this Order would have on business costs, has been prepared and placed in the Library of each House of Parliament. Copies may be obtained from the Milk, Pigs, Eggs and Poultry Division of the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, Room 501, 10 Whitehall Place, London SW1A 2HH.
In respect of the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, by virtue of S.I. 1955/554, 1978/272, 1999/672, 3141; in respect of the National Assembly for Wales, by virtue of the National Assembly for Wales (Transfer of Functions) Order 1999 (S.I. 1999/672) (“the 1999 Order”), in so far as they are exercisable in relation to Wales. The Milk Development Council is a cross-border body as defined in Schedule 3, paragraph 3(2), to the Government of Wales Act 1998 (c. 38). By virtue of article 2(c) of the 1999 Order, functions under the Industrial Organisation and Development Act 1947 which are exercisable in relation to a cross-border body, and which cannot be specifically exercised in relation to Wales, are exercisable by the National Assembly for Wales in relation to that body concurrently with the specified Minister of the Crown.
By the Scotland Act 1998 (Cross-Border Public Authorities) (Specification) Order 1999 (S.I. 1999/1319), made under s.88(5) of the Scotland Act 1998 (c. 46), the Milk Development Council was specified as a cross-border public authority for the purposes of that Act. By article 3 of, and paragraph 3 of Schedule 17 to, the Scotland Act 1998 (Cross-Border Public Authorities) (Adaptation of Functions etc.) Order 1999 (S.I. 1999/1747) it was provided, in respect of any function exercisable by a Minister of the Crown under the Industrial Organisation and Development Act 1947 to modify the Milk Development Council Order 1995 (S.I. 1995/356), that the Secretary of State for Scotland should cease to be such a Minister of the Crown, and that any such function should now be exercisable only with the consent of the Scottish Ministers.
