ACCESS LICENCES) REGULATIONS 2000 (S.I. 2000/2039)

"Explain why the preamble
to the Regulations does not recite (as required by paragraph 2.26
of Statutory Instrument Practice) that the condition in section
6(2) or (3) of the Wireless Telegraphy Act 1998, which is to be
complied with before regulations are made under the Act, has been
2. The omission of a recital in the preamble that
section 6(2) had been complied with is an error which the Department
regrets. The conditions in section 6(2) of the Wireless Telegraphy
Act 1998, namely, the publication of a notice in the London, Edinburgh
and Belfast Gazettes and the consideration of representations,
was satisfied before the making of the Regulations.
3. These Regulations are the second in a series of
Regulations, the first in the series being the Wireless Telegraphy
(Third Generation Licences) Regulations 1999 (S.I. 1999/3162).
The Department will ensure that subsequent Regulations in the
series contain the required recital in their preambles.
