Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Order)
The Local Government (Exemption from Competition) (Scotland) Order 1995 (“the principal Order”) modified the application of Part I of the Local Government Act 1988 (“the 1988 Act”) in the period from 31st March 1995 to 31st December 2000. One of the effects of the principal Order was to suspend compulsory competitive tendering under the 1988 Act in Scotland from 31st March 1995 until “the exemption end date”, different such end dates being set for different authorities and different activities.
This Order amends the principal Order by substituting new exemption end dates. In each case, the new exemption end date is one year after the date previously set.
