Section 27 – Corresponding provision in England or Wales or Northern Ireland

131.Section 27 substitutes a new section 32D of the 1978 Act. At present section 31 governs the effect in Scotland of decisions under provisions in force in England or Wales or Northern Ireland which correspond to provisions in force in Scotland regarding disqualification, and section 32D governs the effect in Scotland of decisions under provisions in force in England and Wales or Northern Ireland which correspond to provisions in force in Scotland regarding suspension by the Tribunal. However provisions in other parts of the UK may not correspond exactly to the provisions in force in Scotland. This new section replaces section 31 and 32D and allows regulations to provide for the effect of such decisions in Scotland, by providing for the effect that is to be given in Scotland to decisions made in other parts of the UK which correspond (whether or not exactly) with decisions made by the Tribunal.
