Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

This Scottish Statutory Instrument has been made in consequence of a defect in the Local Government Act 1988 (Competition) (Scotland) Amendment Regulations 2001 (S.S.I. 2001/432).

The Local Government Act 1988 (Competition) (Scotland) Regulations 1997 (“the principal Regulations”) make provision as to the introduction in Scotland of compulsory competitive tendering (“CCT”) in respect of functional work falling within certain activities which are defined activities for the purposes of the Local Government Act 1988. These Regulations amend the principal Regulations so as to delay the introduction of CCT until 31st December 2003 (regulations 3, 4 and 5)

The Local Government Act 1988 (Competition) (Scotland) Amendment Regulations 2000 and the Local Government Act 1988 (Competition) (Scotland) Amendment Regulations 2001 (S.S.I. 2001/432) are revoked (regulation 6). S.S.I. 2001/432 is revoked before it comes into force.
