Joint Committee on Statutory Instruments Seventh Report


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

Authorisation of Works (Listed Buildings) (England) Order 2001 (S.I. 2001/24)

1. The Committee has asked for a Memorandum on the point set out below.

    "The preamble to this Order cites as enabling powers sections 8 and 93 of the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act 1990. Explain which provisions of the Order are made under which powers conferred by section 93."

2. Section 93 is cited as section 93(4) as authority for the Order being made by statutory instrument. However, the Department concedes that paragraph 2.23A of Statutory Instrument Practice specifies that such a provision does not have to be cited. The Department considers that this does not affect the operation of the Order.
