208. Transfer: supplementary

(1) This section applies where a function of the Chief Justice is transferred to another person ("the transferee") by any provision of these Regulations or of an order under section 207 ("the amending provision").
(2) The transfer does not affect the validity of anything done (or having effect as if done) by or in relation to the Chief Justice before the commencement of the amending provision.
(3) So far as is necessary in consequence of the transfer, an enactment or instrument passed or made before the commencement of the provision has effect, subject to any amendment made by the amending provision or any other provision of these Regulations, as if —
(a) a reference to the Chief Justice were a reference to the transferee;
(b) a reference to the Chief Justice's Office were a reference to the office of the transferee;
(c) a reference to an officer of the Chief Justice were a reference to an officer of the transferee.
(4) Anything done by or in relation to the Chief Justice in connection with the function has effect, so far as is necessary for continuing its effect after the commencement of the amending provision, as if done by or in relation to the transferee.
(5) Documents or forms printed for use in connection with the function may be used in connection with it even though they contain (or are to be read as containing) references to the Chief Justice, his Office or an officer of his.
(6) For the purposes of the use of any such documents after the commencement of the amending provision, those references are to be read as references to the transferee, his office or an officer of his.
