(This note is not part of the Order)
    Section 1 of the Local Government Act 1988 specifies certain "defined authorities" for the purpose of Part I of that Act (Competition). A "local authority" is classed as a defined authority, and for England and Wales the definition of "local authority" is in Section 1(2). This Order amends that definition to include the new authorities to be established in Wales in consequence of the Local Government (Wales) Act 1994. The status of the existing authorities which will remain in existence until 1st April 1996, as defined authorities, is preserved by article 4.
