References to England and Wales in connection with IPCC functions

Part of Policing and Crime Bill – in a Public Bill Committee at 2:15 pm on 12th April 2016.

Alert me about debates like this

‘(1) In section 29 of the Police Reform Act 2002 (interpretation of Part 2), at the end insert—

“(8) References in sections 26, 26BA and 26C to England and Wales include the sea and other waters within the seaward limits of the territorial sea adjacent to England and Wales.”

(2) In section 28 of the Commissioners for Revenue and Customs Act 2005 (complaints and misconduct: England and Wales), in subsection (6), at the end insert “, including the sea and other waters within the seaward limits of the territorial sea adjacent to England and Wales”.

(3) In section 41 of the Police and Justice Act 2006 (immigration and asylum enforcement functions and customs functions: complaints and misconduct), in subsection (7), at the end insert “, including the sea and other waters within the seaward limits of the territorial sea adjacent to England and Wales”.—

Various of the statutory provisions that concern the conferral of functions on the IPCC contain territorial limitations referring to England and Wales. This new clause provides for those references to include adjacent territorial waters.
