This note is not part of the order, but is intended to indicate its general effect.
This order brings into force, on 7 October 1994, sections 89 and 96 of the Energy Companies Act 1992.
On 1 September 1994 every local authority the operations of which included an energy undertaking had transferred that energy undertaking to an energy company. Part 30 of the Local Government Act 1974 was therefore no longer required as from that date.
Section 96 repeals the Electric Power Boards Act 1925 and makes certain consequential amendments. From 1 September 1994 that Act was no longer necessary because an Order in Council made under section 47(1) of the Energy Companies Act 1992 had come into force in respect of each electric power board.
