Paragraph 24 of schedule 1 of the Coronavirus (Scotland) (No. 2) Act 2020 ("the second Scottish Act") requires the Scottish Ministers, in conjunction with the Registrar General of Births, Deaths and Marriages for Scotland ("the Registrar General"), to take such steps as they consider necessary to ensure that the solemnisation of marriages and registration of civil partnerships continue to be available in Scotland whilst paragraph 24 is in force. It also requires the Scottish Ministers to report on the steps taken and on the number of marriages and civil partnerships that have taken place.
