9 Content of certificate


A certificate signed by a person for the purpose of section 8 must state, in the person’s opinion,—


whether the legislation is compatible with each of the principles; and


if not, the respects in which it is incompatible; and


if paragraph (b) applies,—


whether the incompatibility is justified under section 7(2); and


if so, the reasons for that justification and, if not, the reasons why the legislation is proceeding despite the lack of justification.


Subsection (1)(c) does not apply to a certificate given by a chief executive of a public entity if a Minister has also given a certificate under section 8.
