This Order amends the Foot-and-Mouth Disease Declaratory (Controlled Area) (Scotland) (No. 3) Order 2001 (“the Controlled Area Order”) to allow the Scottish Ministers to authorise the use of places other than collecting centres for licensing onward movement of animals to slaughterhouses. It further amends the restrictions in the Controlled Area Order on gatherings of animals to allow an inspector of a local authority, or the Scottish Ministers, to permit these by licence, and to specifically prohibit on farm sales of standing stock.
S.I. 1983/1950, as amended by S.I. 1993/3119, S.I. 1995/2922 and, as regards Scotland, by S.S.I. 2001/52, 55 and 101. See article 3(1) for the definition of “the Minister”. The functions of “the Minister”, so far as exercisable in relation to Scotland, were transferred to the Scottish Ministers by section 53 of the Scotland Act 1998 (c. 46).
