(5)The property, rights and interests to which the existing Scottish functions relate must continue to be managed on behalf of the Crown.

(6)That does not prevent the disposal of property, rights or interests for the purposes of that management.

(7)Subsection (5) also applies to property, rights or interests acquired in the course of that management (except revenues to which section 1(2) of the Civil List Act 1952 applies).

(d)for securing consistency, in the interests of consumers, in the management of property, rights or interests to which subsection (5) applies and of property, rights or interests to which the Commissioners' functions other than the existing Scottish functions relate, so far as it affects the transmission or distribution of electricity or the provision or use of electricity interconnectors.
