148.This section places a duty on Ministers to provide guidance on such matters relating to the operation of Parts 1 and 2 of the Act as they think appropriate. Subsection (2) gives Ministers the power to vary or revoke such guidance issued at any time. Therefore there is a clear statutory duty to issue guidance but Ministers have discretion to decide on what matters they think it appropriate to issue guidance about.
