INTERNATIONAL IMMUNITIES AND PRIVILEGES

The International Organisations (Immunities and Privileges) (Scotland) Order 2009

Made

11th February 2009

Coming into force in accordance with article 1

At the Court at Buckingham Palace, the 11th day of February 2009

Present,

The Queen’s Most Excellent Majesty in Council

This Order is made in exercise of the powers conferred by section 1 of the International Organisations Act 1968(1) and all other powers enabling Her Majesty to do so:

In accordance with section 10 of that Act, a draft of this instrument has been laid before and approved by resolution of the Scottish Parliament(2):

Accordingly, Her Majesty is pleased, by and with the advice of Her Privy Council, to order as follows:

(1)

1968 c. 48; section 1 was amended by the International Organisations Act 1981 (c. 9) and S.I. 2005/3542.

(2)

The function of approving a draft of an Order in Council under section 10 of that Act has transferred to the Scottish Parliament under section 118 of the Scotland Act 1998 (c. 46) in so far as the function is exercisable within devolved competence. Section 118(4) of that Act provides that any reference in a pre-commencement enactment to a requirement for a draft instrument to be approved by either or both Houses of Parliament (as specified in section 118(2)) is to be taken to be, in relation to the exercise of a devolved function by a person other than a Minister of the Crown, a Member of the Scottish Executive or a Scottish Public Authority with mixed functions or no reserved functions, a reference to the Scottish Parliament. Section 118(4) accordingly includes the powers exercisable by Her Majesty in Council.
