Local Government (Wales) Measure 2009

Section 10 - fire and rescue authorities: powers of delegation

19.Section 10 confers on fire and rescue authorities a power to delegate its functions. This power is linked to the power which local authorities and national park Authorities already have under section 101 of the Local Government Act 1972. Section 10 therefore ensures that fire and rescue authorities have the same power as the national park authorities and local authorities have under section 101 of the Local Government Act 1972 for the purpose of discharging or facilitating the discharge of the duties under section 2(1), 3(2) and 8(7).
