Section 45 - No duty to print Scottish statutory instruments

100.This section amends section 92(1)(a) of the Scotland Act 1998 to remove the duty on the QPS to print copies of SSIs. The duty to print imposed by the Scotland Act is being removed to reflect the greater emphasis being placed by sections 41 and 42 on publication (particularly online publication).
