Section 32 - orders under section 31: procedure

63.Section 32 describes the procedures that the Welsh Ministers must follow in making an order under section 31. Unless such an order merely amends an existing order, the Welsh Ministers must consult such authorities or persons who appear to the Welsh Ministers to be representative of interest affected by their proposals. They must also lay a document before the National Assembly for Wales explaining their proposals for a minimum of 60 days (excluding periods when the Assembly is in recess) before the Assembly considers the draft order. These requirements are in addition to the order normally being subject to the affirmative procedure as required by section 50.
