Chamber and committees

Delegated Powers and Law Reform Committee

Meeting date: Tuesday, March 7, 2017

Agenda: Instruments subject to Affirmative Procedure, Instruments subject to Negative Procedure, Instruments not subject to Parliamentary Procedure, Child Poverty (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1, Contract (Third Party Rights) (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1


Contract (Third Party Rights) (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1

The Convener

Item 5 is consideration of the delegated powers in the Contract (Third Party Rights) (Scotland) Bill. As members will be aware, we are looking at the bill in our capacity as a secondary committee that is considering the powers in the bill. That differs from our role as lead committee, when we look at the bill’s policy merits.

The bill contains only one delegated power, which is a commencement provision, and it is suggested that we should be content with that power. Is the committee content with the one delegated power in the bill and content to reflect that in its stage 1 report as lead committee for the bill?

Members indicated agreement.

The Convener

At our next meeting, which is on 14 March, we will, in addition to our regular consideration of Scottish statutory instruments and our consideration of an approach paper on the Seat Belts on School Transport (Scotland) Bill, hold our first evidence session on the Contract (Third Party Rights) (Scotland) Bill, which will be with the Scottish Government bill team and the Scottish Law Commission. I look forward to seeing you all next week. Thank you for attending today.

Meeting closed at 10:14.
