This section provides the Secretary of State with the power to prescribe a form for the serving of notices under section 21(1) or section 21(4) of the Housing Act 1988. Regulations made under this provision are subject to the negative resolution procedure

This power was exercised under ‘FORM 6A’.

N.B. Negative resolution procedure is a type of procedure that a statutory instrument can go through. A statutory instrument under the negative procedure will automatically become law without debate unless there is an objection from either House.
