Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Order)

This Order makes the six Combined Police Area Amalgamation Amendment (No. 2) Schemes 2002 (“the 2002 Schemes”).

The 2002 Schemes amend the provisions of–

(a)the Central Scotland Combined Police Area Amalgamation Scheme 1995;

(b)the Grampian Combined Police Area Amalgamation Scheme 1995;

(c)the Lothian and Borders Combined Police Area Amalgamation Scheme 1995;

(d)the Northern Combined Police Area Amalgamation Scheme 1995;

(e)the Strathclyde Combined Police Area Amalgamation Scheme 1995; and

(f)the Tayside Combined Police Area Amalgamation Scheme 1995,

(“the 1995 Schemes”).

Paragraph 7(2) of each of the 1995 Schemes is amended in order that the appointment of the convenor may be terminated by the relevant joint police board. At present, the appointment of the convenor will only terminate at the expiry of the three year period of office unless the convenor ceases to be a member of the board. These amendments brings the position into line with that of Combined Fire Services Area Administration Schemes where such a power to remove the convenor exists.
