Instruments subject to Made Affirmative Procedure

We come to agenda item 3.

Health Protection (Coronavirus) (International Travel) (Scotland) Amendment (No 17) Regulations 2021 (SSI 2021/301)

An issue has been raised on SSI 2021/301. Regulation 4(b) inserts a new paragraph 9 into regulation 5F of the Health Protection (Coronavirus) (International Travel) (Scotland) Regulations 2020. New paragraph 9 provides for the definition of “private provider” in respect of Covid-19 day 2 and day 8 test providers. As currently drafted, new paragraph 9(b) refers to

“private day 2 and day 2 test providers”,

which should be “private day 2 and day 8 test providers”.

The Scottish Government advised that that would be rectified in a forthcoming amending instrument. SSI 2021/307 was laid before the Parliament on Friday 10 September and includes provision rectifying the error. That instrument will be considered by the committee in due course.

Are members content to report SSI 2021/301 under the general reporting ground due to a typographical error in regulation 4(b), while also noting that the Scottish Government has rectified the error?

Members indicated agreement.

Health Protection (Coronavirus) (Requirements) (Scotland) Amendment Regulations 2021 (SSI 2021/299)

No points have been raised on the instrument. Is the committee content with it?

Members indicated agreement.
