Legal Services (Scotland) Act 2010

Section 145 – The 2007 Act: Further provision

287.Section 145 amends section 78 of the 2007 Act which provides for the power of the Scottish Ministers to make ancillary provision by order in relation to the provisions of that Act. The scope of the existing power was limited following changes made by the Legal Services Act 2007 which affected the 2007 Act. This section inserts a new subsection (1A) into section 78 of the 2007 Act, and a reference to that new subsection in section 79 of the 2007 Act, which allows the order making power to be used as intended, including in areas altered by the Legal Services Act 2007.
