Section 38 - Official prints of Acts of the Scottish Parliament
88.This section restates and replaces articles 3(1) and (2) and 4 of the Interpretation Order.
89.Section 38 makes provision about the numbering of ASPs. They are to be numbered consecutively in each calendar year according to the date on which they received Royal Assent with the prefix “asp” before the number – for example 2010 asp 10. Subsections (6) and (8) make provision for the Clerk of the Parliament to write this number on a copy of the ASP and for that copy to be known as “the official print”.
