I welcome everyone to the fourth meeting in 2020 of the Delegated Powers and Law Reform Committee.

Under agenda item 1, it is proposed that the committee takes items 4 to 7 in private, as they involve consideration of matters that the committee will report on at a later stage. Those reports will be published once they have been agreed.

Does the committee agree to take those items in private?

Members indicated agreement.

Representation of the People (Annual Canvass) Amendment (Scotland) Order 2020 [Draft]

Agenda item 2 is consideration of two affirmative instruments. Although no points have been raised on the draft Representation of the People (Annual Canvass) Amendment (Scotland) Order 2020, it is worth pointing out that the instrument was withdrawn and relaid following questions that were raised by the committee’s legal advisers.

No points have been raised on the draft Representation of the People (Data Matching) (Scotland) Regulations 2020.

Is the committee content with the instruments?

Members indicated agreement.
