Children (Scotland) Act 2020

Detailed provisions

Final provisions

114.Sections 32 to 35 contain standard provisions for Acts.

115.They include regulation-making powers for Ministers to make ancillary provision (e.g. consequential amendments and transitional arrangements) in connection with giving full effect to the Act or regulations made under it. They allow the Act to be brought into force, and the replacement of references to the date on which certain provisions come into force, so those provisions instead show the actual coming into force date of the provisions.
