Section 1(2) of the Act provides that the date of revocation of the 1933 Scheme shall be 1st October 1994. However section 1(3) of the Act empowers the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food and the Secretary of State for Wales to substitute by order for that date such later date before 1st January 1996 as may be specified in the order. This Order, which is made under that power, provides that the date of revocation of the 1933 Scheme under section 1(2) of the Act will be 1st January 1995.

The Act additionally provides that—
