Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Order)

This Order prescribes standard conditions for the purposes of section 12AA of the Prisoners and Criminal Proceedings (Scotland) Act 1993 (“the 1993 Act”).

Section 3AA(1) of the 1993 Act gives the Scottish Ministers a power to release on licence, commonly known as a home detention curfew licence, certain prisoners before the date on which they would have served half of their sentence. The power applies in respect of (a) short-term prisoners serving a sentence of three months or more; or (b) long term prisoners whose release on having served one-half of their sentence has been recommended by the Parole Board.

By virtue of section 12AA(1)(a) of the 1993 Act, a licence must include the standard conditions. For short-term prisoners these are prescribed in Part 1 of the Schedule to this Order and for long term prisoners these are prescribed in Part 2 of that Schedule.

In relation to all prisoners, as well as the standard conditions, the licence must also, by virtue of section 12AA(1)(b) of the 1993 Act, include a curfew condition complying with section 12AB of that Act.
