(This note is not part of the Order)

This Order amends the list of public authorities in Part 3 of Schedule 19 to the Equality Act 2010 in consequence of the National Library of Scotland Act 2012. Amongst other things, the National Library of Scotland Act 2012 changes the name of the body corporate known as “The Trustees of the National Library of Scotland” to the “National Library of Scotland” (or “Leabharlann Nàiseanta na h-Alba”).
