UEFA European Championship (Scotland) Act 2020

Final provisions

Section 36: Repeal

81.This section provides for the automatic repeal of the Act, once enacted. It provides that the Act ceases to have effect on 31 December 2022.

82.However it should be noted the operation of section 17 of the Interpretation and Legislative Reform (Scotland) Act 2010 means that this repeal would not affect a liability to a penalty for a Championship offence under the Act which is committed before the repeal. Furthermore the Act would continue to have effect for the purposes of investigating the offence, bringing proceedings for the offence, and imposing a penalty for the offence.
