21.Sections 27(2) and 60(2) of the 2005 Act allow the Scottish Ministers to make regulations adding to or extending the application of the mandatory licence conditions for premises licences in schedule 3 and for occasional licences in schedule 4. Sections 7 and 8 amend these powers to also enable the Scottish Ministers to delete or amend conditions in schedules 3 and 4.
