Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations, which come into force on 31st March 2004, make further amendments to the Teachers' Superannuation (Scotland) Regulations 1992 (S.I. 1992/280) (“the 1992 Regulations”).

The amendment of regulation G1 of the 1992 Regulations removes the requirement for the Scottish Ministers to produce a set of cash accounts, as this method of accounting has been superseded by the requirement for resource based accounts.

As a result of the requirement for resource based accounts, regulations G2, G3 and Schedule 12 of the 1992 Regulations, are redundant and are therefore omitted by those Regulations.

Consequential amendments are made to regulations C11(3)(a)(i), C13(5), G4(14) of, and paragraph 2(2) of Schedule 4 to the 1992 Regulations, to remove the now redundant references to regulation G2.

(1)

1972 c. 11; section 9 was amended by sections 4(1), 8(3), (4) and (6), and 11 of the Pensions (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1990 (c. 7) (“the 1990 Act”), by section 190, Schedule 8, paragraph 7 of the Pension Schemes Act 1993 (c. 48) and by article 107 of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (Consequential Amendments and Repeals) Order 2001 (S.I. 2001/3649), and section 12 was amended by section 10 of the 1990 Act. The functions of the Secretary of State were transferred to the Scottish Ministers by virtue of the Scotland Act 1998 (Transfer of Functions to the Scottish Ministers etc.) Order 1999, article 2 and Schedule 1 (S.I. 1999/1750).

(2)

This function was transferred to the Treasury by the Transfer of Functions (Minister for the Civil Service and Treasury) Order 1981 (S.I. 1981/1670) and is still exercisable by virtue of S.I. 1999/1750, article 2 and Schedule 1.
