EXPLANATORY NOTE

EXPLANATORY NOTE (This note is not part of the Order)

The City of Newcastle upon Tyne Act 2000 and the London Local Authorities Act 1995 both make provision for the setting up of a register of door supervisors and make it an offence to act as, or employ, an unregistered door supervisor. This Order modifies those enactments to provide that it is a defence to any prosecution to show that the person acting as, or employed as, a door supervisor was licensed to engage in that activity by the Security Industry Authority and was complying with the terms of his licence.

Article 4 of this Order revokes the Private Security Industry Act 2001 (Modification of Local Enactments) Order 2004 which contained a defect.
