Local Government (Wales) Measure 2009

Section 16 - meaning of “relevant regulators” and “relevant functions”

32.Section 16 lists the relevant regulators and their relevant functions. It also provides the Welsh Ministers with a power to change that list by order.

33.Before using the order making power the Welsh Ministers must consult with Welsh improvement authorities, the Auditor General for Wales and relevant regulatory bodies.

34.It is possible that Welsh Ministers may use this power to add a regulator which has not yet come into being. The duty to consult would not work in such cases as Welsh Ministers cannot consult a body which does not exist. Subsection (6) deals with that by removing the duty to consult a new regulator in those circumstances.
