Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations amend (with effect from 1st April 2002) the Council Tax (Dwellings and Part Residential Subjects) (Scotland) Regulations 1992 in consequence of changes made to the Local Government Finance Act 1992 by the Regulation of Care (Scotland) Act 2001 (“the 2001 Act”).

The 2001 Act replaces hostels, nursing homes and residential care homes with care home services. These Regulations ensure that exemptions in relation to council tax apply to accommodation in relation to care home services as they formerly did to hostels, nursing homes and residential care homes.

(1)

1992 c. 14. Section 99(1) contains in paragraph (b) of the definition of “part residential subjects” a power of prescription; section 116(1) contains a definition of “prescribed” relevant to the exercise of the statutory powers under which these regulations are made. The functions of the Secretary of State were transferred to the Scottish Ministers by virtue of section 53 of the Scotland Act 1998 (c. 46).

S.I. 1992/2955.
