The Driver and Vehicle Agency Trading Fund Order (Northern Ireland) 2016

Laid before the Assembly in draft

Coming into operation

1st April 2016

The Driver & Vehicle Testing Agency Trading Fund Order (Northern Ireland) 1996(1) (“the principal order”) established, with effect from 1st April 1996, a trading fund (“the fund”) under the Financial Provisions (Northern Ireland) Order 1993(2) (“the 1993 Order”).

The Crown assets and liabilities described in general terms in Schedule 2 to the principal order were appropriated as assets and liabilities of the fund.

On 1st April 2007 the Driver and Vehicle Testing Agency (“DVTA”) merged with Driver and Vehicle Licensing Northern Ireland (“DVLNI”) to form a single agency known as the Driver and Vehicle Agency (“DVA”).

Following this merger, it appears to the Department of the Environment (“the Department”) that the principal order should be varied by extending the funded operations to include all of the operations of the DVA. The Department has, in accordance with Articles 3(2) and 10(4) of the 1993 Order, taken such steps as appear to it to be appropriate to give such persons as appear to it to be appropriate an opportunity to make representations to it and has laid a report before the Assembly about the representations received and its conclusions.

The Department has, in accordance with Articles 4(1) and (2) and 11 of the 1993 Order, with the concurrence of the Department of Finance and Personnel, determined that the Crown assets and liabilities set out in Schedule 2 to this Order are properly attributable to the additional funded operations and are suitable to be appropriated to the fund.

The Department has, in accordance with Article 4(3) of the 1993 Order, and in accordance with directions given by the Department of Finance and Personnel, determined the values and amounts of such assets and liabilities.

The Department of the Environment, in exercise of the powers conferred on it by Articles 3, 4(1), (2) and (8), 4A and 10(2) and (4) of the Financial Provisions (Northern Ireland) Order 1993 and of every other power enabling it in that behalf, and in accordance with Article 11 of that Order with the concurrence of the Department of Finance and Personnel, makes the following Order:
