Criminal Justice and Licensing (Scotland) Act 2010

Paragraph 5 – The Law Officers Act 1944

877.Paragraph 5 updates a cross-reference in section 2 of the Law Officers Act 1944. Following the passage of the Criminal Procedure (Scotland) Act 1995 the correct provision dealing with demission of office by the Law Officers is section 287 of the 1995 Act rather than the provisions currently mentioned in the 1944 Act which previously did so.
