Section 6 - Power to revoke, amend and re-enact
25.This section provides that the power to make a Scottish instrument includes the ancillary powers to revoke, amend and re-enact. These additional powers are no longer “implied” powers. Since it provides that these ancillary powers are included in and therefore form part of the principal power, the words in paragraph 11 of Schedule 1 to the Interpretation Order which provide that the powers to revoke, amend and re-enact are “exercisable in the same manner and subject to the same conditions or limitations” can be omitted as unnecessary. This section is similar to but wider than the existing provision in paragraph 11 because it applies where an ASP confers power to make any instrument, not just some instruments.
