Section 6 – Power to modify CAP legislation on public intervention and private storage aid

116.This section provides for the Scottish Ministers to be able, by regulations, to modify the CAP legislation governing public intervention and private storage aid,(23) as specified in subsection (3).

117.The power in section 6 of the Act allows these measures to be dis-applied temporarily or permanently, or to be otherwise simplified and improved.

118.The Scottish Ministers are able to decide whether regulations made under this section are to be subject to the negative or affirmative procedure (see paragraph 104 in that respect).


See paragraph 45 of the Policy Memorandum that accompanied the Bill for this Act for information about market intervention under the CMO, “private storage aid” is the purchase of product by public authorities and its removal from the market (“intervention purchasing”), or by paying private companies to store product rather than placing it immediately on the market.
