EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Order)

Under article 4, the specified functions may be exercised either generally or only as permitted within the authorisation. Article 5 provides that the functions specified will not include matters which would be excluded by section 71 of the Deregulation and Contracting Out Act 1994 (c. 40).
