Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations amend the Criminal Legal Aid (Scotland) Regulations 1996 (“the 1996 Regulations”) so as to provide that the duty solicitor scheme shall not apply to proceedings which take place in a court which has been designated as a drug court by the sheriff principal (regulation 5).

Regulation 3 updates the 1996 Regulations to reflect an amendment to the Criminal Procedure (Scotland) Act 1995 (c. 46).

Regulation 4 amends an incorrect reference in the 1996 Regulations.
