Social Care (Self-directed Support)(Scotland) Act 2013

Section 20 – Delegation

61.Section 20 amends section 15 of the Community Care and Health (Scotland) Act 2002. The effect is that Ministers can lay regulations which prohibit delegation of functions which would otherwise be permitted to be delegated by a local authority entering into an arrangement in accordance with section 15 of the 2002 Act. A prohibition under the new power in section 20 would state that certain functions may only be delegated where the arrangement entered into also delegates the appropriate self-directed support duties in the Act.
