Management of Offenders (Scotland) Act 2019

Certain restrictive measures

212.Paragraph 1 amends section 209 of the 1995 Act to provide that a supervised release order ceases to have effect where a person becomes a long-term prisoner by virtue of the rules on single-terming of sentences under section 27(5) of the 1993 Act.

213.Paragraph 2 amends the 1995 Act to allow for the imposition of a restricted movement requirement as part of a community payback order (‘CPO’) at the initial point of sentence, and make a number of necessary consequential changes as a result. A restricted movement requirement is a requirement in a CPO that allows the court to restrict a person’s movement so as to either be in a specified place at a specified time or during specified periods; or not to be in a specified place, or a specified class of places, at a specified time or during specified periods.

214.Paragraph 3 amends section 234AZA(4)(a) of the 1995 Act so as to provide greater clarity that the ‘question’ referred to at sections 234AZA(4)(b) and (c) is the question of whether to make a non-harassment order in the person’s case.
