Chamber and committees

Meeting date: Wednesday, October 6, 2021

Rural Affairs, Islands and Natural Environment Committee 06 October 2021

Agenda: Decision on Taking Business in Private, European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018, Subordinate Legislation, European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018, Scotland’s Island Communities


Subordinate Legislation

Meat Preparations (Import Conditions) (Scotland) Amendment (No 2) Regulations 2021 (SSI 2021/288)

We move to agenda item 3. I refer members to papers 2, 3 and 4. As the committee agreed that the negative procedure was appropriate for the Official Controls (Transitional Staging Period) (Miscellaneous Amendments) (Scotland) Regulations 2021, we now consider it and the Meat Preparations (Import Conditions) (Scotland) Amendment (No 2) Regulations 2021, which is also subject to the negative procedure.

Does any member wish to raise an issue regarding either of the instruments? I would like to write to the Scottish Government for clarification on a response that it made with regard to the positioning of checkpoints. It stated that they were

“no longer appropriate and insufficiently flexible”.

As no other member has any comments, is the committee content to note the instruments?

Members indicated agreement.
