255 Application of this Part

(1)

The Minister may appoint a Ministerial body under subpart 1 of this Part only to a local authority and not to any entity that the local authority may control or have an interest in, for example, a council-controlled organisation, council-controlled trading organisation, council organisation, or other subsidiary of the local authority.

(2)

However, the Minister may exercise the powers in this Part in relation to a local board and, for that purpose, this Part applies, with any necessary modifications, as if a local board were a local authority.
