Accordingly, where the law confers a function, duty or power on the Authority but no Officer has been expressly authorised to exercise that function, duty or power under the Scheme of Delegation, the Council, the Leader and Cabinet (insofar as it is within their remit) hereby authorise any Director and any person authorised by any of them, to exercise that function, duty or power on behalf of the Authority.
Note: Where an Officer has been expressly authorised to exercise a function, duty or power, only that Officer and any other Officer authorised in accordance with paragraph 5.7 of Section 5, can exercise that function, duty or power.
