(This note is not part of the Order)
This Order commences, on 15th April 1992, section 1 of the Licensing (Amendment) (Scotland) Act 1992. That section amends section 25 of the Licensing (Scotland) Act 1976 to enable licensing boards to transfer liquor licences by a one stage procedure, in addition to the existing two stage procedure; and also amends section 19 of the 1976 Act which makes it a criminal offence in certain circumstances to canvas licensing board members.
The Order contains a savings provision to ensure that licensing boards should continue to deal with any licence temporarily transferred before 15th April 1992 under the provisions of the old section 25(1A), (1B) and (1C) of the 1976 Act.
