(This note is not part of the Order)
This Order brings the Interpretation and Legislative Reform (Scotland) Act 2010 (“the Act”) fully into force on 6th April 2011. It also brings certain provisions of the Act into force earlier on 26th January 2011, but only in relation to subordinate legislation made under the Act.
The provisions of the Act brought into force for that limited purpose on 26th January 2011 are—
(a)section 27 and the associated schedule 2, so that the Act’s definition of “Scottish statutory instrument” will include subordinate legislation made under the Act on or after 26th January 2011;
(b)sections 28 to 32, so that the parliamentary scrutiny procedures described by those sections will apply to such subordinate legislation; and
(c)section 37 of the Act, so that that section’s definition of what it means to lay a Scottish statutory instrument before the Scottish Parliament will apply to such subordinate legislation.
The Act received Royal Assent on 3rd June 2010. Part 1, Part 3 and, apart from section 55(3), Part 6 of the Act came into force the following day.
