Local Government and Elections (Wales) Act 2021

Paragraph 14 - Orders under Part 3 of the Local Government (Democracy) (Wales) Act 2013

94.Paragraph 14 amends section 43 of the 2013 Act so the Welsh Ministers may by order vary or revoke (electoral arrangements) orders made under sections 37, 38, 39 or 43 of the 2013 Act, in consequence of regulations made under paragraphs 9 or 10 of Schedule 1. Section 43 of the 2013 Act provides for the variation and revocation of orders made under the 2013 Act and sets out the circumstances in which orders under the specified sections in the 2013 Act may be varied or revoked.

95.Without this amendment there would be no mechanism for varying or revoking orders made under the 2013 Act, even though the electoral arrangements (or community boundaries, if a consequential) in the area in question had been re-defined by regulations made under paragraphs 9 or 10 of this Schedule.
