Joint Committee on Statutory Instruments Thirty-Fifth Report


APPENDIX III

Memorandum by the Department of the Environment, Transport and the Regions

LOCAL AUTHORITIES (GOODS AND SERVICES) (PUBLIC BODIES) (NO. 3) ORDER 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.
