Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Order)

This Order varies the Electricity Lands (Rateable Values) (Scotland) Order 2000 and the Electricity Generators (Rateable Values) (Scotland) Order 2000 following upon changes in the electricity industry consequential on the Utilities Act 2000 (c. 27). The variations take account of the fact that during the course of the financial year 2001–2002, Scottish Power UK plc and Scottish and Southern Energy plc were required to transfer their generation, distribution and transmission activities to successor companies. In the case of Scottish Power UK plc the successor companies are Scottish Power Generation Limited, SP Distribution Limited, SP Power Systems Limited and SP Transmission Limited. In the case of Scottish and Southern Energy plc the successor companies are SSE Generation Limited, Scottish Hydro-Electric Power Distribution Limited and Scottish Hydro-Electric Transmission Limited. Articles 18 and 19 make a consequential amendment to the Local Government (Scotland) Act 1975.

1975 c. 30; section 6(1) to (7) was substituted by the Local Government (Scotland) Act 1978 (c. 4), section 1, and section 6(1) was subsequently substituted by the Local Government Finance Act 1988 (c. 41), Schedule 12, paragraph 11 and amended by the Local Government Finance Act 1992 (c. 14), Schedule 13, paragraph 42. Section 6(1A) was repealed by the Local Government etc. (Scotland) Act 1994 (c. 39), Schedule 14. Section 6(5A) and (8) was inserted by the Local Government etc (Scotland) Act 1994 (c. 39), sections 160 and 157; section 37(1) contains a definition of “prescribed” which is relevant to the exercise of the powers under which this Order is made and which was amended by the Local Government Finance Act 1992, Schedule 13, paragraph 43(c). 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).

(2)

In terms of section 6(6) of the 1975 Act, an Order under that section may provide that the Order shall have effect as from the beginning of the financial year in which it is made.

(3)

S.S.I. 2000/88 as amended by S.S.I. 2000/284.

(5)

Section 2(1)(ff) was inserted by S.S.I. 2000/88, article 15(3).
