1102.     Code of practice relating to treasure.

The Secretary of State1 must prepare a code of practice relating to treasure2, keep the code under review3, and revise it when appropriate4. If the Secretary of State considers that different provision should be made for England and Wales and Northern Ireland, or that different provision should otherwise be made for treasure found in different areas, he may prepare two or more separate codes5.

The code must in particular set out the principles and practice to be followed by the Secretary of State when considering to whom treasure should be offered6,
