UK subordinate legislation - The Sea Fisheries (Amendment etc.) (No. 2) Regulations 2021

Letter from Mairi Gougeon, Cabinet Secretary for Rural Affairs and Islands MSP, to the Convener on 5 November 2021

Dear Finlay,

The Sea Fisheries (Amendment etc.) (No. 2) Regulations 2021
EU exit legislation - protocol with Scottish Parliament

I am writing in relation to the protocol on obtaining the approval of the Scottish Parliament to proposals by the Scottish Ministers to consent to the making of UK secondary legislation affecting devolved areas arising from EU Exit.

That protocol, as agreed between the Scottish Government and the Parliament, accompanied the letter from the Cabinet Secretary for Government Business and Constitutional Relations, Michael Russell MSP, to the Conveners of the Finance & Constitution and Delegated Powers and Law Reform Committees on 4 November 2020 and replaced the previous protocol that was put in place in 2018.

I attach a Type 1 notification which sets out the details of the SI which the UK Government propose to make and the reasons why I am content that Scottish devolved matters are to be included in this SI. Please note, we are yet to have sight of the final SI and it is not available in the public domain at this stage. We will, in accordance with the protocol, advise you when the final SI is laid and advise you as to whether the final SI is in keeping with the terms of this notification.

I am copying this letter to the Convener of the Delegated Powers and Law Reform Committee.

I look forward to hearing from you by 3 December 2021.

Yours sincerely,

Mairi Gougeon
