Interests of Members of the Scottish Parliament Act 2006


98.Paragraph 10 confers a power on the Parliament to modify by resolution any part of the schedule which it considers necessary or expedient. This power is necessary to avoid the need for new primary legislation should there be a requirement to alter the terms of the schedule perhaps in the light of changing circumstances or events. Amendment could be by addition, removal or replacement of provisions.

99.Publication of the resolution by Her Majesty’s Stationery Office is provided for under paragraph 10(2) which applies relevant provisions of the Scotland Act 1998 (Transitory and Transitional Provisions) (Statutory Instruments) Order 1999 (SI 1999/1096) to the resolution.
