Section 76 - The What Matters Code and the Progression Code: procedure

174.Section 76 sets out the procedure that must be followed in making or revising the Codes required under sections 6 and 7 of the Act (the What Matters Code and the Progression Code). In either case, the Welsh Ministers must consult such persons as they think appropriate, before making or revising the Code. They must also lay before Senedd Cymru a draft of the Code (or of proposed revisions to the Code where appropriate). The draft Code must be laid before the Senedd for not less than 40 days. If the Senedd resolves not to approve the Code (or the revised Code) it cannot be issued (or revised). If there is no such resolution the Welsh Ministers must issue the Code (or the revised Code) in the form of the draft as laid before the Senedd.

175.Subsection (6) allows consultation on a Code, required by subsection (2)(a), to be carried out before section 76 comes into force.
