(This note is not part of the Order)

This Order amends the Pigs (Records, Identification and Movement) (Scotland) Order 2011.

Article 3 of that Order made provision to the effect that a notice could be made otherwise than in writing. This was a defect. Article 2 of this Order substitutes a new article 3 that omits that provision.


1981 c.22; section 8 was amended by paragraph 1 of schedule 2 to the Animal Health and Welfare (Scotland) Act 2006 (asp 11). The functions conferred upon “the Ministers” (as defined in section 86) insofar as within devolved competence, were transferred to the Scottish Ministers by virtue of section 53 of the Scotland Act 1998 (c.46).
