Public Health (Wales) Act 2017

Section 110 - Meaning of “public body”

215.This section sets out the public bodies to which the regulations on carrying out HIAs will apply.

216.The section also gives the Welsh Ministers the power by regulations to amend the list of public bodies by adding to the list, or amending or removing a public body (or description of body) which is already listed. Bodies may be added to the list only if they exercise functions of a public nature. If a body whose functions comprise a mixture of functions of a public nature and other functions were added to the list of public bodies, subsection (4) would operate to prevent the provisions of this Part of the Act from applying to those other functions.
