EXPLANATORY NOTE

This Order makes provision consequential on the Criminal Procedure (Legal Assistance, Detention and Appeals) (Scotland) Act 2010 (2010 asp 15) (“2010 ASP”). That Act makes provision concerning the right to have access to a solicitor of persons being questioned by a constable on suspicion of having committed an offence. It also extends the period for which persons may be detained by a constable from 6 to 12 hours, with a possible further extension up to a maximum of 24 hours. The Act also amends the Legal Aid (Scotland) Act 1986 (“1986 Act”) to enable the Scottish Ministers to make regulations providing for criminal advice and assistance to be made available to such suspects in certain circumstances without reference to financial limits.

Article 2 introduces Schedule 1 to the Order, which makes provision corresponding to the 2010 ASP in relation to persons being questioned by officers of Revenue and Customs and designated customs officials on suspicion of having committed a Revenue and Customs offence (“relevant suspects”). Schedule 1 amends Part 3 of the Criminal Law (Consolidation) (Scotland) Act 1995 (“1995 Act”) by inserting a new section 25A which makes provision in respect of the right of relevant suspects to have access to a solicitor prior to and during questioning. Further, it extends the period of detention under section 24 of the 1995 Act from 6 to 12 hours and it provides for that period to be further extended up to a maximum period of 24 hours in certain circumstances.

Article 3 allows criminal advice and assistance under the 1986 Act to be made available to relevant suspects.

Article 4 extends regulation 8 of the Advice and Assistance Civil Legal Aid (Financial Conditions and Contributions) (Scotland) Regulations 2011 to provide for advice and assistance to be available to relevant suspects without reference to financial limits subject to transitional arrangements.

Article 5 extends regulation 3 of the Criminal Legal Assistance (Duty Solicitors) (Scotland) Regulations 2011, which provides for the availability of duty solicitors for suspects, to relevant suspects subject to transitional arrangements.

Article 6 introduces Schedule 2 to the Order, which amends Part 10 of the Criminal Justice and Public Order Act 1994 (“the 1994 Act”). It applies the right of persons arrested or detained to have intimation sent to another person and the right of suspects to have access to a solicitor under the Criminal Procedure (Scotland) Act 1995 (as amended by the 2010 ASP), with modifications, to persons who are arrested or detained by the Scottish police using the cross-border enforcement powers in Part 10 of the 1994 Act. Schedule 2 also extends the period for which persons may be detained to 12 hours after the person’s arrival at the police station to which the person is taken following detention under the 1994 Act and it provides for the possibility of further extension up to a maximum period of 24 hours.
