Education, Children and Young People Committee

Meeting date: Wednesday, January 18, 2023

Agenda: Budget Scrutiny 2023-24, Subordinate Legislation


Subordinate Legislation

Our next item is consideration of two pieces of subordinate legislation.

Education (Fees and Student Support) (Miscellaneous Amendment) (Scotland) Regulations 2022 (SSI 2022/362)

Does anyone have any comments on the regulations?

Can I ask what the definition is of

“EU nationals with protected rights under the terms of the Citizens’ Rights Agreements”?

I want to make sure that I properly understand what that means.

We will have a short suspension while we check that.

11:39 Meeting suspended.  

11:41 On resuming—  

Given the question that Mr Kerr asked, we will pause consideration of the order and come back to it at another meeting. We will seek clarification on that question.

St Mary’s Music School (Aided Places) (Scotland) Amendment (No 2) Regulations 2022 (SSI 2022/377)

Does anyone have any comments to make on the regulations?

Ross Greer

I am not moving a motion to annul the instrument, because the specifics of it are harmless enough. I just want to put on the record that the Scottish Greens do not believe that it is good value for the public purse to give £1 million a year to a private school when there are four state music schools in Scotland that would benefit greatly from that money.

The Convener

Do members agree that the committee does not wish to make any recommendations in relation to the instrument?

Members indicated agreement.

The Convener

Thank you. We will come back to the Education (Fees and Student Support) (Miscellaneous Amendment) (Scotland) Regulations 2022 at a later date.

The public part of today’s meeting is now at an end. We will consider our final item in private.

11:43 Meeting continued in private until 12:07.
