Since December 2007, Councillors have been able to undertake some “signing powers” previously undertaken by Justices of the Peace. These signing functions are the same as those that could previously be performed by a JP who was on the Supplemental List, that is a “Signing Justice”, as defined in the Bail, Judicial Appointments, etc. (Scotland) Act 2000. The 2007 Act authorises Councillors to:
* sign any document for the purpose of authenticating another person’s signature;
* take and authenticate by their signature any written declaration;
* give a signed certificate of facts within the Councillor’s knowledge;
* give a signed certificate of the Councillor’s opinion as to any matter.
In the cases above, Councillor Aitchison may be able to help you. Consult with him at one of his regular surgeries, or book an appointment via 01324 506153. Details on “signing powers” are available online.
