Interests of Members of the Scottish Parliament Act 2006

Section 20: Revocation and saving

79.Article 10 of the Order provides that it will cease to have effect on a day appointed by or under an Act of the Scottish Parliament. Subsection (1) provides that the day will be the day on which this section comes into force.

80.Subsection (2) requires the Clerk to keep copies of the register of interests held under the Order for five years after the day on which this section comes into force. This is consistent with what is to happen with the new register under section 10.

81.Subsection (3) applies section 1(4) to the registers kept under the 1999 Order to allow the Clerk to determine how the previous registers, held under the Order, are to be kept. The Clerk must keep them in a form that he or she thinks is appropriate which, when printed, must be able to show what the register contains.
