Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Order)

This Order, which forms part of Scots law only, is a partial revocation of the Food Protection (Emergency Prohibitions) (Radioactivity in Sheep) Order 1991 (S.I. 1991/20).

That Order contains emergency prohibitions restricting various activities in order to prevent human consumption of food which has been, or which may have been, rendered unsuitable for that purpose in consequence of the escape of radioactive substances from a nuclear reactor situated at Chernobyl in the Ukraine.

The effect of this Order is to reduce the area which is subject to restriction.
