(3) In section 1 (size limits etc for fish) in subsection (9) (as substituted by section 194(5) of the Marine and Coastal Access Act 2009(10)) in paragraph (a) of the definition of “the appropriate national authority” after “Wales” insert “or the Welsh zone”.

(4) In section 5 (power to restrict fishing for sea fish) in subsection (9) (as substituted by section 198(3) of the Marine and Coastal Access Act 2009) in paragraph (a) of the definition of “the appropriate national authority” after “Wales” insert “or the Welsh zone”.

(1)

So far as relating to Wales (which, by virtue of the definition in section 158(1) of the Government of Wales Act 2006, includes the sea adjacent to Wales out as far as the seaward boundary of the territorial sea), the functions in question are already functions of the Welsh Ministers, either having been conferred or imposed directly on them, or having been transferred to them from the National Assembly for Wales by paragraph 30 of Schedule 11 to the Government of Wales Act 2006. The functions so transferred from the National Assembly for Wales were transferred to it from Ministers of the Crown by the National Assembly for Wales (Transfer of Functions) Order 1999 (S.I. 1999/672), in the case of the functions mentioned in sub-paragraphs (a) to (f), and by the National Assembly for Wales (Transfer of Functions) Order 2000 (S.I. 2000/253) in the case of the functions mentioned in paragraph (g).

Section 8 is amended by paragraph 43 of Part 1 of Schedule 2 to the Scotland Act 1998 (Consequential Modifications) (No. 2) Order 1999 (S.I. 1999/1820). For the meaning of “the Board of Trade” and the vesting of functions under section 8 in the Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills, see the following statutory instruments: 1970/1537, 1974/692, 1983/1127, 2007/3324 and 2009/2748.
