Disposal of property which is not returned

203.Paragraph 10 of schedule 2 provides that the Scottish Ministers may dispose of property that ought to be returned to its owner after a 3 month period has elapsed and they have not been successful in their attempt to return the property. The Scottish Ministers may dispose of the property in any manner they see fit providing it is not practicable to dispose of it by simply returning it immediately to the owner. This would apply if, for example, the owner of the property was untraceable or did not respond to enquiries.
