Scotland Act 1998


This section is linked to the series of provisions dealing with the transfer of property and liabilities to the Scottish Ministers and the Lord Advocate and to the SPCB.  Sections 60 and 62 enable subordinate legislation to provide for the transfer of certain property and liabilities to the Scottish Ministers in connection with the exercise of their devolved functions and to the Lord Advocate in connection with the exercise of his retained functions. Section 109 provides for the reverse mechanism to that in sections 60 and 62, allowing property to be transferred from the Scottish Ministers and Lord Advocate to UK Ministers or government departments.  Section 90 provides for the transfer of property of cross-border public authorities and paragraph 2 of Schedule 2 provides for the transfer of property to the SPCB.
