Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Order)

This Order amends various Orders and Regulations applying to Scotland which refer to the Food and Drugs (Scotland) Act 1956, the Milk and Dairies (Amendment) Act 1922 and the Milk (Special Designations) Act 1949, which have now been repealed by the Food Safety Act 1990.

The Order amends Orders and Regulations referring to the 1956 Act and the 1922 and 1949 Acts. It amends Orders and Regulations defining food so that they are consistent with the new definition in the 1990 Act, and changes references to local authorities to food authorities as defined in that Act. Where Orders and Regulations apply provisions of the earlier Acts, they are amended so that the provisions of the 1990 Act are applied.

Amendments are made to Regulations relating to imports and meat, and Orders and Regulations relating to milk are amended so that provisions contained in the earlier Acts concerning milk are now in those Orders and Regulations.
