1 The enabling provision is Communications Regulation Act 2002 (20/2002), s. 44(1). This section was substituted by Communications Regulation (Amendment) Act 2007 (22/2007), s. 12(a) and amended again by Communications Regulation (Postal Services) Act 2011 (21/2011), s. 60. These regulations appear to remain in force as the requirement to give notice of intention to prosecute is still in the amended s. 44 and there does not appear to be another SI prescribing this.
2 The enabling provision is Communications Regulation Act 2002 (20/2002), s. 30. This was variously amended and s. 44 of the Communications Regulation (Postal Services) Act 2011 (21/2011) in particular imposes additional requirements in relation to levies. This SI appears to have been superseded by subsequent postal levy orders, is probably obsolete and should be revoked.

4 This SI relates to a levy year ending 30 June 2004, and appears to be obsolete and should be revoked.

This SI is made under collectively cited Communications Regulation Acts 2002 to 2010, and is therefore listed under the first Act in the collective citation.

6 The Communications Regulation (Postal Services) Act 2011 (21/2011), s. 4 and sch. 1, repealed the Railways (Conveyance of Mails) Act 1838 (1 & 2 Vict., c. 98), the Post Office (Duties) Act 1847 (10 & 11 Vict., c. 85) and the Post Office (Evasion of Postage) Act 1937 (7/1937). The repeals came into effect on 2 August 2011, on the signing into law of the 2011 Act: see s. 1 of the 2011 Act and Art. 25.4.1º of the Constitution of Ireland.
7 There is no enabling provision specified other than powers conferred by collectively cited Post Office Acts. This SI appears to be obsolete and should be revoked.

10 The Post Amendment Warrant legislation is expressed as being made under the Post Office Acts 1908 to 1937 (or relevant collective citation). There is no mention of an enabling section until Inland Post Amendment (No. 8) Warrant 1956 (S.I. No. 116 of 1956) which refers to s. 2. It appears that the legislative power exists under s. 2(1). This provision was repealed but the regulations which were in force at the time were continued by Post Office (Amendment) Act 1969 (18/1969), s. 6. This was repealed by Postal and Telecommunications Services Act 1983 (24/1983), s. 7 and sch. 3, with regulations being continued by a saver under s. 72. Later (post 1970) regulations which were made under s. 6 of the 1969 Act were continued in force by the same saver under s. 72. Section 72 was repealed by Communications Regulations (Postal Services) 2011 (21/2011), s. 4 and sch. 1 part 1. There is a saver under s. 25(1)(b), made subject to the publication of terms, conditions and charges under s. 22; this temporary saver provision appears to continue to have effect. It is likely that much of the contents of these warrants is superseded and obsolete.
