which add fluroxypyr, metsulfuron-methyl, prohexadione-calcium, triasulfuron, esfenvalerate and bentazone respectively to Annex I to the Directive (regulation 2).

The Regulations amend the 1995 Regulations to allow the Scottish Ministers to arrange with the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food and the Secretary of State acting jointly, for the discharge of any functions of the Scottish Ministers under the Regulations to be exercised on their behalf by a Minister of the Crown. Such an arrangement may include provision for any fees payable under any enactment to any part of the Scottish Administration in respect of that function to be collected by a Minister of the Crown or Government Department on behalf of that part of the Scottish Administration (regulation 2(b) and 3).

The Regulations revoke the Plant Protection Products (Amendment) (No. 2) Regulations 1999, which made amendments to the 1995 Regulations and the 1995 Fees Regulations which are consolidated in these Regulations (regulation 4).

(1)

1972 c. 68. Section 2(2) was amended by the Scotland Act 1998 (c. 46), Schedule 8, paragraph 15(3). The functions conferred upon the Minister of the Crown under section 2(2) of the European Communities Act 1972, in so far as within devolved competence, were transferred to the Scottish Ministers by virtue of section 53 of the Scotland Act 1998.

(2)

1973 c. 51.

The requirement to obtain the consent of the Treasury was removed by section 55 of the Scotland Act 1998.
