Welsh Elections (Coronavirus) Act 2021

Section 17 – Power to make consequential and transitional provision etc.

48.This section gives the Welsh Ministers a regulation-making power to make any incidental, supplementary, consequential, transitional, transitory or saving provisions that they consider appropriate for the purposes of, or in connection with, giving full effect to the Act. Regulations made in reliance on the power can modify, repeal or revoke any enactment, including a provision in the Act itself. The power enables retrospective provision to be made in relation to local government by-elections. The power to make such regulations is subject to Senedd scrutiny via the negative resolution procedure but where regulations under this section amend, modify or repeal provision contained in primary legislation the made affirmative procedure applies.
