South of Scotland Enterprise Act 2019


Section 4 (Application of public bodies legislation)

12.Section 4 makes schedule 2 part of the Act. For an explanation of the schedule’s provisions see paragraphs 69 to 87 of these Notes.

13.Schedule 2 modifies other enactments, including subordinate legislation. Where primary legislation, like the Act, modifies another enactment (“enactment A”), and an earlier enactment confers a power to modify enactment A by subordinate legislation, there may be doubt about whether that power can be used to further modify enactment A. Section 4(2) confirms that any power to modify an enactment can continue to be used to modify that enactment even to the extent that it has been modified by schedule 2.
