Transport (Scotland) Act 2019

Provision of information

152.Inserted section 3K enables a local transport authority to require relevant information from operators of local services when the authority is exercising functions in relation to preparing and making a BSIP plan or scheme; reviewing the effectiveness of a plan or scheme or determining whether and how to vary or revoke a plan or scheme. What constitutes relevant information for these purposes will be set out in regulations made by the Scottish Ministers and those regulations may specify circumstances in which information may not be required by the local transport authority.

153.Information required under section 3K may only be used for the specific purpose for which it was gathered. It is an offence to disclose this information other than to permitted persons (see subsection (8)). The permitted persons are a local transport authority, any person providing services to the local transport authority in connection with the function being exercised, and where section 3E applies (that is, where the Scottish Ministers are required to act jointly with the local transport authority), the Scottish Ministers.
