Instruments subject to Affirmative Procedure

The Convener (John Scott)

Good morning, everyone. I welcome members to the Delegated Powers and Law Reform Committee’s 17th meeting in 2017.

As we meet this morning, our thoughts are with the people of Manchester and, in particular, with the families and friends of those who lost their lives and with those who are injured. It is with a heavy heart that we continue with our business.

Agenda item 1 is on instruments that are subject to the affirmative procedure. No points have been raised by our legal advisers on the following three affirmative instruments.

Mental Health (Cross-border Visits) (Scotland) Amendment Regulations 2017 [Draft]

Is the committee content with the instruments?

Members indicated agreement.
