(This note is not part of the Order)
This Order amends Part 2 of schedule 2 to the Scottish Public Services Ombudsman Act 2002.
Schedule 2 to that Act specifies persons liable to investigation by the Scottish Public Services Ombudsman.
The Order adds into the schedule Children’s Hearings Scotland, the National Convener of Children’s Hearings Scotland and the Principal Reporter. This is in consequence of the Children’s Hearings (Scotland) Act 2011 which establishes both Children’s Hearings Scotland and the National Convener of Children’s Hearings Scotland and removes the Principal Reporter from membership of the Scottish Children’s Reporter Administration.
2002 asp 11. Section 3(2) provides for the power conferred therein to be exercised by Her Majesty by Order in Council. Section 24(2) provides that no recommendation to make an Order in Council under section 3(2) is to be made to Her Majesty in Council unless a draft of the Order has been laid before, and approved by resolution of, the Scottish Parliament.
Section 24 has been modified by paragraph 5 of schedule 3 to the Interpretation and Legislative Reform (Scotland) Act 2010 (asp 10).
