Disabled Persons’ Parking Badges (Scotland) Act 2014

Section 1 - Form of badge

4.Paragraph (b) of section 21(1A) of the 1970 Act requires the Scottish Ministers to prescribe the form of the badge in regulations. The regulations must be published (see sections 27 and 41 of the Interpretation and Legislative Reform (Scotland) Act 2010), thus all of the details about what constitutes a badge in proper form are immediately put into the public domain.

5.Section 1 substitutes a new paragraph (b) that will allow the Scottish Ministers to specify requirements about the form of a badge administratively, which means the requirements so specified need not be published. The new paragraph (b) continues to allow the Scottish Ministers to specify some, or all, of the requirements as to the form of a badge in regulations.
