Scottish Parliamentary Pensions Act 2009

Section 2: Grants payable on leaving office

25.Section 2 of the Act introduces Schedule 2 which sets out the circumstances in which the SPCB is required to pay grants to individuals after they have ceased to serve as MSPs or have stood down from certain positions as office-holders. As the Schedule makes provision for the payment of gratuities made in accordance with section 81(3) of the 1998 Act, it replaces the Grants Order (see article 2 of the Grants Order which states that it will cease to apply on the making of such provision).
