EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Act of Sederunt)

This Act of Sederunt amends the Act of Sederunt (Commissary Business) 1975 by substituting Livingston for Linlithgow in the list of places where commissary business may be conducted.

This amendment is necessary in light of the amendments made by the Scottish Ministers in the Sheriff Court Districts Amendment Order 2009, the effect of which will be that Linlithgow Sheriff Court District will become Livingston Sheriff Court District and Livingston will be the only place where a sheriff court will be held in that district.
