That the Parliament agrees that the Private International Law (Implementation of Agreements) Bill, introduced in the House of Lords on 27 February 2020, providing a clear approach to the domestic implementation of the 1996, 2005 and 2007 Hague Conventions at the end of the Implementation Period and providing a power for the Scottish Ministers or the Secretary of State with the consent of the Scottish Ministers to, on the UK entering any international agreement on Private International Law, implement that agreement in order for it to have legal effect in domestic law, in so far as these matters fall within the legislative competence of the Scottish Parliament and alter the executive competence of the Scottish Ministers, should be considered by the UK Parliament.
