Section 6: Repeal of requirement to prepare Finance Accounts

This section repeals a redundant statutory obligation (section 10 of the Exchequer and Financial Provisions Act (Northern Ireland) 1950) which required the Department of Finance and Personnel to prepare and lay, before the Northern Ireland Assembly, the Finance Accounts of Northern Ireland. The information previously only contained within the Account is now available in other published Departmental Accounts.
