The Convener

Agenda item 2 is consideration of an item of European Union exit subordinate legislation—SSI 2019/285—which the Scottish Government has categorised as being of low significance on the basis that it

“makes mainly technical amendments in order to fix deficiencies in domestic law.”

That is also the view of the Scottish Parliament information centre and the office of the solicitor to the Scottish Parliament. On 24 September, the Delegated Powers and Law Reform Committee agreed that the instrument should be considered under the negative procedure and with the “low significance” categorisation.

Does the committee agree that the categorisation that the Scottish Government has applied is correct?

Members indicated agreement.
