Courts Reform (Scotland) Act 2014

Part 2 – Transitional provision

276.Paragraph 2 transfers those staff who work as part of the Scottish Tribunals Service to the SCTS.

277.Paragraph 3 creates a power to allow the SCTS to provide administrative support to the listed tribunals until such time as they are transferred-in to the Scottish Tribunals (the First-tier Tribunal for Scotland and the Upper Tribunal for Scotland) as created in the Tribunals (Scotland) Act 2014. It also allows a current President of the named tribunals to sit on the board of the SCTS until such time as Chamber Presidents are in operation. The Scottish Ministers may by order add tribunals which are to be transferred-in to the Scottish Tribunals to the list of those to be administered in the interim by SCTS and add office-holders in those tribunals to the list of office-holder eligible to sit on the SCTS board (sub-paragraph (5)). Such an order is subject to the affirmative procedure by virtue of section 133(2)(a).
