The explanatory note
has just come out and says:
"... section 31 comes into force on a day appointed by the Secretary of State. Sections 32 and 33 come into force two months after the Act is passed."
Section 31 is the Scrutiny Office requirement. S.32 is the part about joint scrutiny arrangements and so presumably takes effect in md-January.
