Tied Pubs (Scotland) Act 2021

Chapter 1: Assistance from the Scottish Ministers
Loans and other assistance

86.Paragraph 10 enables the Scottish Ministers to make loans to the adjudicator. This may, for example, be needed at the time of establishing the adjudicator, before the levy on pub-owning businesses has been imposed and collected.

87.Paragraph 11 allows the Scottish Ministers to provide staff (including on a seconded basis, see notes on paragraph 24 of schedule 2 below), premises, facilities or other assistance to the adjudicator and may decide whether or not to do so at a charge. This would allow the Scottish Government, for example, to offer the adjudicator and relevant support staff space within existing premises, supported by existing administrative and IT services etc.
