Section 78: Ancillary provision

219.Section 78 makes provision to enable the Scottish Ministers to make by order such incidental, supplemental, consequential, transitional, transitory or saving provision as they consider necessary or expedient for the purposes, or in consequence of, or for giving full effect to the Act. Such an order may make different provision for different purposes and may modify any enactment, instrument or document. Such a power could, for example, be used to prescribe procedures to be followed by the Commission on its establishment in relation to services complaints not determined by a professional body at that time or handling complaints in respect of which the Scottish Legal Services Ombudsman had not completed an investigation at that time.
