Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations—
(a)vary the minimum daily rate of deductions made from a person’s pay when that pay is subject to a current maintenance or conjoined arrestment; and
(b)substitute new tables for those in Schedule 2 to the Debtors (Scotland) Act 1987 which set out the deductions made from a person’s pay when that pay is subject to an earnings arrestment.
The new figures take into account the difference in purchasing power since the tables were drawn up and broadly restore the level of deductions in real terms to that applicable at the passing of the 1987 Act.
