Parliamentary Under Secretary of State, Scottish Office
St Andrew’s House, Edinburgh
4th August 1997
(This note is not part of the Order)
Section 1(2)(b) of the Local Government Act 1992 has effect in Scotland so as to require local authorities, joint committees and joint boards to publish information as to their standards of performance in a financial year (in accordance with directions by the Accounts Commission for Scotland) no later than 9 months after the end of that year. This Order amends that requirement so that relevant bodies will need to effect publication within 6 months after the end of the financial year. The change will first take effect as regards information pertaining to financial year 1997/98.
