4(1)Nothing in this Act shall affect a repealed enactment in its operation in relation to offences committed before the commencement of this Act.

(2)Where an offence, for the continuance of which a penalty was provided, has been committed under a repealed enactment proceedings may, in the same manner as if the offence had been committed under the corresponding provision of this Act, be taken under this Act in respect of the continuance, after the commencement of this Act, of the offence.

5This Act shall apply in relation to any authority for the detention or guardianship of a person who was liable to be detained or subject to guardianship under the Mental Health (Scotland) Act 1960 immediately before 30th September 1984 as if the provisions of this Act which derive from provisions amended by section 5 of the Mental Health (Amendment) (Scotland) Act 1983 and any amendments in Schedule 2 to that Act which are consequential on those sections were included in this Act in the form which the provisions from which they derive would take if those amendments were disregarded ; but this provision shall not apply to any renewal of that authority on or after that date.

6This Act shall apply to any application made before 30th September 1984 as if the provisions of this Act which derive from provisions amended by sections 8(1) or (2) or (3b) or (3c) or 9 of the Mental Health (Amendment) (Scotland) Act 1983 and any amendments in Schedule 2 to that Act which are consequential on those sections were included in this Act in the form which the provisions from which they derive would take if those amendments were disregarded.

7Where on 30th September 1984 a person who has not attained the age of 16 years is subject to guardianship by virtue of a guardianship application the authority for his guardianship shall terminate on that day.

8This Act shall apply to any emergency recommendation or admission following thereon made before 30th September 1984 as if the provisions of this Act which derive from provisions amended by section 12 of the Mental Health (Amendment) (Scotland) Act 1983 and the repeal in Schedule 3 to that Act which is consequential on that section were included in this Act in the form which the provisions from which they derive would take if those amendments were disregarded; but, when the period during which a patient may be detained in pursuance of such an emergency recommendation expires, it shall not be competent for the patient to be further detained immediately thereafter under the said provisions of this Act in the form which they take as so amended.

9This Act shall apply in relation to any renewal of authority made before 30th September 1984 as if the provisions of this Act which derive from provisions amended by section 16(a) to (d) of the Mental Health (Amendment) (Scotland) Act 1983 and any amendments in Schedule 2 to that Act which are consequential on that section were included in this Act in the form which the provisions from which they derive would take if those amendments were disregarded ; and, where an authority has been renewed before that date for a period of 2 years of which less than 16 months has expired on that date, that period shall expire at the end of 18 months from the date on which it began.

10This Act shall apply in relation to the definition of " nearest relative " in any proceedings commenced before 30th September 1984 as if the provisions of this Act which derive from provisions amended by section 19 of the Mental Health (Amendment) (Scotland) Act 1983 and any amendments in Schedule 2 to that Act which are consequential on that section were included in this Act in the form which the provisions from which they derive would take if those amendments were disregarded.

11(1)Section 98(3) of this Act shall not apply to any treatment given to a patient in the period of 6 months beginning with 30th September 1984 if—
