Legislation (Wales) Act 2019

Section 19 – Amendment of subordinate legislation by an Assembly Act

109.Section 19 applies where an Assembly Act amends or revokes subordinate legislation. Where this happens, it can give rise to questions about whether the amendment or revocation is in some way intended to limit the future exercise of the power under which the subordinate legislation is made. Sometimes express provision is made in the Assembly Act to remove any doubt about this, but the general rule in section 19 will make this unnecessary.

110.Section 19 has effect except to the extent that express provision is made to the contrary or the context requires otherwise. It has no equivalent in the 1978 Act.
