Coming into force

The National Assembly for Wales being satisfied with respect to the non-indigenous mammalian species which are the subject of this Order that by reason of their destructive habits it is desirable to control the keeping of them and to destroy any which may be at large, in exercise of the powers conferred by section 10(1) of the Destructive Imported Animals Act 1932(1) and vested in it(2) makes the following Order:
The functions conferred by section 10 of the Act on the Secretary of State and the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food have been devolved to the National Assembly for Wales in so far as the functions are exercisable in relation to Wales. The functions in section 10 were transferred by virtue of article 2 of, and Schedule 1 to, the National Assembly for Wales (Transfer of Functions) Order 1999 (S.I. 1999/672). The 1999 Order provides an exception to the transfer of functions under section 10 of the 1932 Act where the exercise of the functions relates to the importation of the types of animals to which that Act relates. This exception has effect so as to transfer to the Assembly only those functions conferred on the Secretary of State for Wales by the Transfer of Functions (Wales) Order 1969 (S.I. 1969/388). The 1969 Order provided for the powers in section 10 to be exercised jointly by the Secretary of State and the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food. This Order relates to the keeping of mink, not the importation of mink, so the exception in the 1999 Order does not apply.
