Criminal Justice Committee 06 October 2021 [Draft]

Agenda: Decision on Taking Business in Private, Pre-Budget Scrutiny 2022-23, Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill


Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill

The next agenda item is consideration of a paper from the clerks on a United Kingdom Parliament bill. I refer members to paper 4. Since we last agreed to publish a short legislative consent report on the Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill, the Delegated Powers and Law Reform Committee has published a report and has highlighted a couple of issues, which are outlined in the paper. It is suggested that we update our planned report and publish it now.

We should note that the Scottish Government plans to produce a supplementary legislative consent memorandum in due course. We can consider the issue of extraction of information from digital devices then.

Do members agree that we should update our draft report, as is suggested in paper 4, and that we should ask the clerks to make arrangements for publication?

Members indicated agreement.

That concludes the public part of our meeting. Our next meeting will be on Wednesday 27 October, when we will hold a round-table evidence session on the role of the Scottish criminal justice sector in tackling the misuse of drugs.
