Section 133 - Orders and regulations: Parts 8 and 10
351.This section regulates the powers conferred on Scottish Ministers by Parts 8 and 10 to make orders and regulations.

Section 134 – Short title and commencement

353.Subsection (3) imposes a ‘sunset provision’ on the provisions in Part 2 by providing that sections 14 to 30 and schedules 5, 6 and 7 cease to have effect 5 years after they come into effect. Subsection (6) ensures that if this ‘sunset provision’ is triggered, the repeal of the provisions in Part 2 does not affect the provisions of any order already made under that Part. Subsection (4) allows the Scottish Ministers, by affirmative order, to extend or further extend, the period for which the order-making provisions in Part 2 have effect.
