HL Deb 20 October 1998 vol 593 cc1392-3


1.—(1) In this Schedule—

(2) Sections 31, 45, 51, 53, 55, 56, 57 and 59(2) and (3) and paragraph 12 of Schedule 9 ("the applied provisions") apply for the purposes of this Schedule as they apply for the purposes of Part I of this Act.

(3) Section 2(5) applies for the purposes of any provisions of this Schedule which are concerned with the operation of the Chapter I prohibition as it applies for the purposes of Part I of this Act.

(4) In relation to any of the matters in respect of which a regulator may exercise powers as a result of paragraph 35(l), the applied provisions are to have effect as if references to the Director included references to the regulator.

(5) The fact that to a limited extent the Chapter I prohibition does not apply to an agreement because a transitional period is provided by virtue of this Schedule does not require those provisions of the agreement in respect of which there is a transitional period to be disregarded when considering whether the agreement infringes the prohibition for other reasons.

General power to make transitional provision and savings

2.—(1) Nothing in this Schedule affects the power of the Secretary of State under section 74 to make transitional provisions or savings.

(2) An order under that section may modify any provision made by this Schedule.

Advice and information

3.—(1) The Director may publish advice and information explaining provisions of this Schedule to persons who are likely to be affected by them.

(2) Any advice or information published by the Director under this paragraph is to be published in such form and manner as he considers appropriate.
