Sections 29 to 36 – Restraints on transactions and recruitment etc. by merging authorities

63.Sections 29 to 36 provide the Welsh Ministers with powers to restrain and control certain activities of merging local authorities. These provisions apply to authorities merging by voluntary merger under the Act, and to mergers given effect by other legislation before or passed by the National Assembly for Wales (this is because of the definition of “merging authority” in section 2(3)(b)).
