Subordinate Legislation


Food Information (Transitional Provisions) (Miscellaneous Amendments) (Scotland) Regulations 2022 (SSI 2022/265)

The Convener

The final item on our agenda is consideration of two negative instruments.

At its meeting on 20 September, the Delegated Powers and Law Reform Committee considered SSI 2022/265 and made no recommendations. The purpose of the instrument is to update the list of home grounds for Scottish football clubs for the purposes of schedule 1 of the Sports Grounds and Sporting Events (Designation) (Scotland) Order 2014, as amended in 2022. The changes are required in light of promotions to and relegation from the Scottish football pyramid and to ensure consistency of approach over the application of the alcohol and other controls framework that is set out in the Criminal Law (Consolidation) (Scotland) Act 1995. Part II of the act imposes certain restrictions on the sale and consumption of alcohol at designated grounds for designated sporting events.?

No motion to annul has been lodged in relation to the instrument. As members have no comments, do we agree that the committee does not make any?recommendations in relation to this negative?instrument?

Members indicated agreement.


Sports Grounds and Sporting Events (Designation) (Scotland) Amendment (No 2) Order 2022 (SSI 2022/263)

The Convener

The Delegated Powers and Law Reform Committee considered SSI 2022/263 at its meeting on 20 September and agreed to draw the instrument to the attention of the Parliament on reporting ground (j), for failure to comply with the laying requirements in section 28(2) of the Interpretation and Legislative Reform (Scotland) Act 2010. The committee also reported that it was content with the explanations that the Scottish Government provided for failure to comply with the laying requirements.

The purpose of the instrument is to make amendments to existing transitional provisions contained in subordinate legislation and in retained European Union legislation that relate to various food labelling requirements. The amendments, which apply only in Scotland, extend previous transitional arrangements that were due to expire at the end of September 2022 so that they continue to apply until the end of 2023.

No motion to annul has been lodged in relation to the instrument. As members have no comments, do we agree that the committee does not make any?recommendations in relation to this negative?instrument?

Members indicated agreement.

The Convener

At our next meeting, we will take evidence on the recently published independent review of racism in Scottish cricket and from representatives of integration joint boards on their experiences to date of health and social care integration in Scotland.

Before we move into private session, could we mention the inquiry into female participation in sport?

That will be dealt with when we move into private session.
