Justice Committee 29 January 2019

Agenda: Subordinate Legislation, European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018


European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018

Licensing (Amendment) (EU Exit) (Scotland) Regulations 2019 (SSI 2019/6)

Under agenda item 4, the committee will consider whether a statutory instrument made under the powers conferred on the devolved authorities by the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 has been laid under the appropriate procedure. I refer members to paper 3, which is a note by the clerk, and paper 4, which is a private paper. The instrument has been laid under the negative procedure, and the committee will consider its policy content at a future meeting.

If members have no comments, does the committee agree that the negative procedure is the appropriate procedure for this instrument?

Do we prejudice our ability to make the same decision for any similar legislation in future by—

No. Every instrument will be judged on its own merits.

Does the committee agree that the negative procedure is appropriate for the instrument?

Members indicated agreement.

That concludes the public part of today’s meeting. Our next meeting will be on 5 February, when the committee will discuss the petitions that it is currently considering and look at its forward work programme.
