Commentary on Sections

Part 7: Final Provisions

Sections 27- 30 – Regulations, Interpretation, Crown application and Coming into force

114.Section 28 sets out the defined terms used in the Act.

115.Section 29 provides that the Act applies to the Crown, but specifies that the Crown will not be criminally liable for any offence under the Act. Instead, in the case of contravention by the Crown of a provision made by or under the Act, the High Court may declare the act or omission to be unlawful.

116.Section 30 sets out the provisions that will come into effect on the day after the day the Act receives Royal Assent (this section and the subsequent section dealing with the Act’s short title) and provides for the remaining provisions of the Act to come into force by commencement order made by the Welsh Ministers.
