Abolition of Feudal Tenure etc. (Scotland) Act 2000

Section 76: Minor and consequential amendments, repeals and power to amend or repeal enactments

225.This section will give effect to the schedules of amendments and repeals. Because enactments made against the background of the feudal system extend over hundreds of years and cover disparate subjects, it is impossible to guarantee that all provisions containing feudal terminology or concepts have been discovered. The translation provision in section 73 should cover this possibility, but, as an added safeguard, power is given by subsection (3) to make further consequential amendments by order.
