The Convener

Agenda item 2 is consideration of a notification from the Scottish Government in relation to consent to a UK statutory instrument.

Members will recall that there is an agreed protocol between the Scottish Government and the Parliament in relation to instruments that are made by the UK Government under powers in the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 and which relate to proposals that are within the legislative competence of the Scottish Parliament. The Scottish Government and the Parliament have agreed on an approach to UK-wide statutory instruments to avoid duplication of effort, for example, or where only technical or minor amendments are required.

Do members have any comments in relation to the instrument?

As no member has indicated that they have any comments, are members content that we write to the Scottish Government to confirm that the committee is content for consent to be given to the UK statutory instrument that is referred to in the notification?

I see that everyone is nodding, so we will write to the Scottish Government to that effect.
