(c)alter the maximum amounts which may be paid out of the Scottish Consolidated Fund in connection with expenditure of the various parts of the Scottish Administration and of the Forestry Commissioners, the Food Standards Agency, the Scottish Parliamentary Corporate Body and Audit Scotland, and the maximum amounts of receipts which may be applied in connection with their expenditure (articles 2(3)(b) and 2(5));

(d)provide that minor occupancy receipts of office holders in the Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service in respect of notional capital charging may not be applied for certain specified purposes instead of being paid into the Scottish Consolidated Fund (article 2(4)(a)); and
