In addition, Section 5 (3) of the Statutory Instrument Act, 2013 states that “without limiting by implication the form that consultation referred to in subsection (1) might take, the consultation shall—
a. involve notification, either directly or by advertisement, of bodies that, or of organizations representative of persons who, are likely to be affected by the proposed instrument; or
b. invite submissions to be made by a specified date or might invite participation in public hearings to be held concerning the proposed instrument”.
