Environment, Climate Change and Land Reform Committee
Meeting date: Tuesday, January 19, 2021
Agenda: Climate Change Plan, Subordinate Legislation, European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018
European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018
International Waste Shipments (Amendment) (EU Exit) Regulations 2021
Agenda item 4 is consideration of a notification from the Scottish Government in relation to consent to a United Kingdom statutory instrument. Members will recall that there is an agreed protocol between the Scottish Government and the Parliament in relation to instruments made by the UK Government under the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 that relate to proposals that are within the legislative competence of the Scottish Parliament. The Scottish Government and Parliament have agreed on a UK-wide approach to statutory instruments. The committee raised queries with the Scottish Government in advance of the meeting, and we have received a response.
Do members have any comments to make?
As no one has any comments to make, 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 SI that is referred to in the notification?
I see that everyone is content. That is agreed to unanimously. Thank you very much.
The committee will meet twice next week: on Monday 25 January, when we will consider statutory instruments, including the draft Land Reform (Scotland) Act 2016 (Register of Persons Holding a Controlled Interest in Land) (Scotland) Regulations 2021 and the draft Animal Welfare (Licensing of Activities Involving Animals) (Scotland) Regulations 2021; and on Tuesday 26 January, when the committee will continue to take evidence on the updated climate change plan.
That concludes the public part of our meeting today.11:33 Meeting continued in private until 12:06.
