Scottish Statutory Instruments
20th June 2012
Laid before the Scottish Parliament
22nd June 2012
Coming into force
1st July 2012
The Scottish Ministers make the following Order in exercise of the powers conferred by section 2(2) of, and paragraph 1A of Schedule 2 to, the European Communities Act 1972(1), section 72 of the Animal Health Act 1981(2) and all other powers enabling them to do so(3).
This Order makes provision for a purpose mentioned in section 2(2) of the European Communities Act 1972 and it appears to the Scottish Ministers that it is expedient for the references to the EU instruments in articles 2 and 3 to be construed as references to those instruments as amended from time to time.
1972 c.68. Section 2(2) was amended by the Scotland Act 1998 (c.46) (“the 1998 Act”), Schedule 8, paragraph 15(3) (which was amended by section 27(4) of the Legislative and Regulatory Reform Act 2006 (c.51) (“the 2006 Act”)). Section 2(2) was also amended by section 27(1)(a) of the 2006 Act and by the European Union (Amendment) Act 2008 (c.7) (“the 2008 Act”), Schedule, Part 1. The functions conferred upon the Minister of the Crown under section 2(2), insofar as within devolved competence, were transferred to the Scottish Ministers by virtue of section 53 of the 1998 Act. Paragraph 1A of Schedule 2 was inserted by section 28 of the 2006 Act and was amended by Schedule, Part 1 of the 2008 Act.
1981 c.22 (“the 1981 Act”). The power in section 72 is exercised only insofar as article 3 of this instrument creates an offence under the 1981 Act. The power to make orders under this section was originally conferred on “the Minister”, as defined in section 86(1) of the 1981 Act. The functions of the Minister were, insofar as within devolved competence, transferred to the Scottish Ministers by virtue of section 53 of the Scotland Act 1998 (c.46).
The powers to make this Order are exercised together by virtue of section 33(2) of the Interpretation and Legislative Reform (Scotland) Act 2010 (asp 10). The Order is subject to the negative procedure by virtue of section 33(4) of that Act.
