(a)regulation 3 requires the trustees not less than 28 days after the date of the resolution to publish a notice of the resolution in the form set out in Schedule 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5 as the case may be, or in a form substantially to the like effect;

Section 11 of the 1990 Act empowers the trustees of a public trust, which has an annual income not exceeding #1000 and which prohibits the expenditure of the trust capital, to expend such capital in certain circumstances. Regulation 7 makes provision as to how, for the purposes of section 11(3) of that Act, the trustees of such a public trust are to notify their intention to expend such capital. It requires the trustees to publish in a newspaper a notice of their intention in the form set out in Schedule 6 to these Regulations or in a form as near thereto as circumstances permit.
Regulation 8 makes provision as to where any document, which is required by these Regulations to be sent to the Lord Advocate, is to be sent.
