In accordance with section 316(2)(n) of that Act, a draft of this instrument was laid before Parliament and approved by a resolution of each House of Parliament.
This instrument contains regulations made before the end of the period of six months beginning with the coming into force of the provisions of that Act by virtue of which the regulations are made(2).
2004 c. 35. Section 286 is modified in its application to multi-employer schemes by S.I. 2005/441 as amended by S.I. 2005/993 and 2005/2113; section 318(1) is cited because of the meaning there given to “prescribed” and “regulations”.
