Memorandum by the Department
of the Environment, Transport and the Regions
1998 (S.I. 1998/1123)
1. The Committee has requested
a memorandum on the following point:
Paragraph (1) of article 3
provides that the restrictions in paragraph (2) are not to apply
in relation to the Institute of Burial and Cremation Administration.
Explain the need for this provision, given that the restrictions
in paragraph (2) relate only to agreements entered into by the
other named public bodies.
2. Paragraph (1) of article
3 was inadvertently retained from an earlier draft of this Order
in which the other public bodies were not individually identified
in paragraph (2). The Department apologises for this oversight.
