Section 33 – Determination of appeals by appointed person: supplementary provision

221.Section 33 inserts new paragraph 7(3) into Schedule 3 of the 1990 Act (determination of certain appeals by person appointed by Secretary of State). The new paragraph provides that, where the Welsh Ministers appoint a member of staff of the Welsh Government to determine an appeal under Schedule 3, the functions of determining the appeal and of doing anything in connection with the appeal are to be treated as functions of the Welsh Government for the purposes of the Public Services Ombudsman (Wales) Act 2005. This enables the Public Services Ombudsman for Wales to investigate any allegations of maladministration made in relation to the appointed person’s discharge of those functions.
