Arbitration (Scotland) ACT 2010

Arbitration (Scotland) Act 1894, Arbitration Acts 1950 and 1975

260.These repeals reflect the consolidation, replacement or re-enactment of equivalent provisions in the Arbitration (Scotland) Act. The 1950 and 1975 Act are repealed in so far as they form part of Scots law. The 1950 Act can be repealed because the international obligations under the Geneva Convention on the Execution of Foreign Arbitral Awards which it implements are superseded on the adoption by all relevant States of the New York Convention, which expressly supersedes the relevant provisions of the Geneva Convention.
