478.     Control by the Privy Council.

If it appears to the Privy Council that the Council of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons has failed, but ought, to discharge any of its functions under the Veterinary Surgeons Act 1966, the Privy Council may notify its opinion to the council and may direct it to discharge that function in such a manner and within such a period as may be specified in the direction1. If the council fails to comply with such a direction, the Privy Council may itself discharge the function in question2.
