Air Weapons and Licensing (Scotland) Act 2015

Section 78 – Revocation of Part 2 licences

249.This section gives a licensing authority the ability to revoke a Part 2 licence, in addition to the current ability to suspend such licences. This is achieved by a number of amendments to the provisions of the 1982 Act. While it will be for the local authority to determine what the most appropriate disposal is in the circumstances, it is now possible for the authority to revoke a licence in circumstances where previously its only option was to suspend it. Paragraph 11 of Schedule 1 to the 1982 Act sets out those circumstances in full.
