(1)This Act binds the Crown.
(2)But subordinate legislation made under this Act need not bind the Crown.
(3)No contravention by the Crown of a provision made by or under this Act makes the Crown criminally liable.
(4)But the Court of Session may, on the application of any public body or office-holder having responsibility for enforcing that provision, declare unlawful any act or omission of the Crown which constitutes such a contravention.
