Rural Affairs, Islands and Natural Environment Committee


Consideration of UK subordinate legislation - The Waste and Agriculture (Legislative Functions) Regs 2021

Letter from the Deputy Convener to the Cabinet Secretary for Rural Affairs and Islands, Mairi Gougeon MSP, 10 November 2021


Dear Cabinet Secretary,

At its meeting on 10 November 2021, the Committee considered the agricultural provisions in the consent notification for the UK SI - The Waste and Agriculture (Legislative Functions) Regs 2021.

As this SI cuts across a number of policy areas and addresses legislative deficiencies across three ministerial portfolios, the Conveners of the Net Zero, Energy and Transport Committee, and the Local Government, Housing and Planning Committee will write separately to inform the Scottish Government of their consideration.

The Rural Affairs, Islands and Natural Environment Committee agreed to confirm that it is content for the Scottish Government to give consent to UK Ministers making regulations on its behalf in relation to this SI. In doing so, the Committee asks you to clarify whether the Scottish Government has made any SSIs under the defective power that this proposed SI seeks to correct.

The Committee would appreciate a response in due course and an update once the final SI has been laid.

Yours sincerely

Beatrice Wishart, Deputy Convener of the Rural Affairs, Islands and Natural Environment Committee
