5 Extension and expiry of the Coronavirus Acts

5.1 Part 1 of both Scottish Acts are now due to expire at the end of 30 September 2022, having been extended by SSI from end of 31 March 2022 to end of 30 September 2022. Four provisions of the Scottish Acts were expired by SSI on 30 March 2022 as these provisions were considered to be no longer necessary.

5.2 The majority of the devolved provisions in the UK Act expired on 24 March 2022, two years after the day the Act was passed, subject to certain excepted provisions which are set out in the Act and five provisions which have been extended using by SSI to 24 September 2022.

5.3 We continue to be committed to only retaining legislative provisions where they are necessary and proportionate.

The other devolved provisions in the UK Act that were due to expire on 24 March 2022[3] expired on that date.
