GENERAL MEDICAL COUNCIL (INTERIM ORDERS COMMITTEE) (TRANSITIONAL PROVISIONS) RULES ORDER OF COUNCIL 2000 (S.I. 2000/2054)

  1. It is with great regret that the Department and the Privy Council Office must draw the attention of the Committee to the fact that the above Orders of Council were not laid before Parliament at the time that they were made in June and July 2000.
  2. On the advice of the Clerk to the Committee, the Privy Council Office laid the Orders before Parliament on 14 May 2002.
  3. The Orders were all made under the Medical Act 1983. The Orders (and the rules approved by them) are valid notwithstanding the failure to lay them.

  

Unfortunately at the time of the making of the orders it was overlooked that the Medical Act 1983 and the Medical Act (Amendment) Order 2000 required that they be laid.

14 May 2002
