Council of the Law Society of Scotland Act 2003


22.The effect of subsection (11) of the new section 3A is to provide that the powers of delegation conferred by that section are without prejudice to any other power which the Council may have to delegate their functions. This is intended to preserve whatever arguments there may be for saying that the Council may already have powers to delegate their functions.

23.Subsection (12) is designed to ensure dovetailing of the Act with the coming into force of the Public Appointments and Public Bodies etc. (Scotland) Act 2003 (asp 4) and to ensure that the statutory references are correct.
