to that effect
Can "to that effect" be used in the way in which it is used in the following sentence?
While ruling out large-scale intervention in sport due to the absence of a power to that effect, the Commission noted that the EU nevertheless had to ensure the compliance of the initiatives taken by national authorities and sports federations with EU law.
Re: to that effect
However, you cannot use "due to" [not properly at least] in this manner.
"Due to" always requires a form of the "to be" verb first. It is due to.... Otherwise, use because of (you will notice the "be" is embedded in that word!).
