(2)The [F2Scottish Ministers] may by order made by statutory instrument except from the operation of the foregoing subsection such provisions of any local Act as may be specified in the order (being provisions to which apart from the order that subsection would apply) and direct that the corresponding provisions of this Act or of any regulations having effect by virtue of this Act (which provisions shall be specified in the order) shall not have effect in the areas in which the specified provisions of the local Act have effect:
Provided that no order under this subsection shall be made in relation to a provision (being a provision of a local Act) which has ceased to have effect.
(3)If it appears to the [F2Scottish Ministers] that any provision of any local Act, not being a provision which has ceased to have effect by virtue of subsection (1) of this section, is inconsistent with any provision of this Act or is no longer required, or requires to be amended, having regard to any provision of this Act, he may by order repeal or amend the provision of the local Act as he may consider appropriate.
