Memorandum by the Scottish Office Pensions Agency

SCOTLAND ACT 1998 (TRANSITORY AND TRANSITIONAL PROVISIONS)

  (SCOTTISH PARLIAMENTARY PENSION SCHEME) ORDER 1999 (S.I. 1999/1082)

 This Memorandum is submitted by the Scottish Office Pensions Agency to the Joint Committee on Statutory Instruments in response to their letter dated 19 May 1999 in which they raised the following points:-

  (1)  Given that regulation J1(3) refers to an application under paragraph 1 or 2, ought not the reference in paragraph (3)(b) to "paragraph (1)(a) or (b)" to have been extended to include a reference to paragraph (2)(a) or (b)?

  (2)  In regulation P1 ought not the reference in-

    (i)  paragraph (4)(a) to "paragraph (1)(b)" to have read "paragraph (3)(b)";

    (ii)  paragraph (5) to "paragraph (1)(a)" to have read "paragraph (3)(a)"?

  (3)  In paragraph 3 of Schedule 1 ought not the reference to "paragraph 3" to have read "paragraph 2"?

The Agency acknowledges that each of these points is correct and undertakes to make the appropriate amendments as soon as possible.
