15 The enabling provision is Industrial Development (No. 2) Act 1981 (14/1981), s. 3. This is repealed by Industrial Development Act 1986 (9/1986), s. 9 subject to s. 3(3): (3) An order under section 3 of the Industrial Development (No. 2) Act, 1981, in force immediately before the commencement of this section shall continue in force and shall be deemed to be an order made under this section.
16 The enabling provision is Industrial Development Act 1986 (9/1986), s. 31(1). This was amended by Industrial Development (Amendment) Act 1991 (30/1991), s. 9(d), commenced by S.I. No. 365 of 1991. The amendment does not appear to affect the status of these regulations.
17 All other Acts in the collectively cited Export Promotion Acts 1959 to 1987 were repealed by the Industrial Development (Enterprise Ireland) Act 1998 (34/1998). Section 2, the remaining substantive provision of this Act, concerns the licensing of Special Trading Houses. Section 29 of the Finance Act 1987 which established them is repealed. Special Trading Houses are referred in the Taxes Consolidation Act 1997, ss. 443(12) and 496 (which refers to s. 443). Section 443 was deleted by the Finance Act 2013, s. 54 and sch. 1 par. 20. The Act is probably obsolete.
