Air Weapons and Licensing (Scotland) Act 2015

Section 80 – Conditions for Part 3 licences

251.This section recreates powers that allow the Scottish Ministers to set mandatory conditions that would apply to all licences issued under Part 3 of the 1982 Act. The condition setting power is broad, would be specified by Order and could encompass different licences and particular purposes and sets of circumstances or cases.

252.The section also allows local licensing authorities to produce standard conditions to which licences issued by them under this Part would be subject. The conditions would have no effect until they are published and cannot be inconsistent with the mandatory conditions. Standard conditions can be varied or dis-applied for particular applications, although a variation could also not be inconsistent with a mandatory requirement.
