Schedule 2 – Modifications of enactments

77.Schedule 2 modifies specified enactments in consequence of the Act.

78.Part 1 provides for the transitory modification of the 1925 Act to allow the Scottish Ministers to appoint a person as the chairman of The Trustees of the National Library of Scotland, pending the repeal of that Act on commencement of schedule 3.

79.The modifications in Part 2 principally reflect the renaming of the governing body in section 1(1) but the modification in paragraph 2 is to reflect that grant-in-aid will be paid to NLS through the mechanism in section 7 of the Act and not through section 22 of the National Heritage (Scotland) Act 1985 (c.16).
