(This note is not part of the Rules)

These Rules amend the Lands Tribunal for Scotland Rules 2003 (“the 2003 Rules”) and come into force on 21st December 2017.

Rule 2 amends the expenses provision in rule 28 of the 2003 Rules to make clear that expenses for applications to the Lands Tribunal for Scotland under schedule 3A of the Communications Act 2003 (“the Electronic Communications Code”) (which was inserted by schedule 1 of the Digital Economy Act 2017) shall be determined in accordance with paragraph 96 of the Electronic Communications Code instead of under rule 28(1).

Paragraph 96 of the Electronic Communications Code provides that the Tribunal may make such order as it think fit as to expenses, but in making such an order must have regard to the extent to which any party is successful in the proceedings.
