Social Security (Scotland) Act 2018

Ancillary provision

135.Section 95 allows the Scottish Ministers to make incidental, supplementary, consequential, transitional, transitory or saving provision that they consider it appropriate to make. Any use of this power has to be for the purposes of the Act or any provision made within it, or in connection with, or for giving full effect to, the Act or any provision made within it. Such provision is made by regulations, which are subject to the affirmative procedure if they amend any Act, but otherwise are subject to the negative procedure (see the next paragraph for an explanation of these procedures).
