Further to section 21(2) of that Act, the Secretary of State is satisfied that these Regulations are expedient for the purpose of securing that the duties of persons with corporate responsibility, or the liability of those persons to any sanction, take due account of the effects of coronavirus on business or on the economy of the United Kingdom.
