EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Order)


This Order specifies functions of the Scottish Ministers for the purposes of section 93(1) of the Scotland Act 1998. Section 93(1) allows the Scottish Ministers to make arrangements for any of their specified functions to be exercised on their behalf by a Minister of the Crown.

Article 2, for the purposes of section 93(1) of the Scotland Act 1998, specifies the payment functions of the Scottish Ministers under regulations 5(2) (Healthy Start food and payments in lieu), 10(4) (failure to receive benefit represented by the voucher) and 14(2) (payment of food outlet) of the Healthy Start Scheme and Welfare Food (Amendment) Regulations 2005. These functions were transferred to the Scottish Ministers by the Scotland Act 1998 (Transfer of Functions to the Scottish Ministers etc.) (No. 3) Order 2006.

Article 3 modifies the specification of the functions of the Scottish Ministers in relation to the welfare food scheme under the Welfare Food Regulations 1996, which have previously been specified for the purposes of section 93(1) in the Scotland Act 1998 (Agency Arrangements) (Specification) Order 1999. The changes reflect the abolition of NHS Trusts in Scotland and the revocation of the regulations in relation to provision of dried milk at a reduced price in the Welfare Food Regulations 1996.
