Devolution (Further Powers) Committee 11 December 2014 : Thursday, December 11, 2014
The Convener

I thank the witnesses for their considered contributions, which we have found very valuable. No doubt we will see some of them again at some stage.

Our next meeting is on Thursday 18 December, when we will hear from the Electoral Management Board for Scotland on the electoral administration of the referendum.

Meeting closed at 11:35.  

Devolution (Further Powers) Committee 11 December 2014 : Thursday, December 11, 2014
The Convener

I want to try something novel and see whether I can get a yes or no answer from five professors. If the legislation is passed successfully, will we need to come back in 2016 to do this again?



Devolution (Further Powers) Committee 11 December 2014 : Thursday, December 11, 2014
The Convener

Rob Gibson and Linda Fabiani need to go to question time in a few minutes, but we will carry on for a few moments.

11:30  

Devolution (Further Powers) Committee 11 December 2014 : Thursday, December 11, 2014
The Convener

All five witnesses seem to be stumped.



Devolution (Further Powers) Committee 11 December 2014 : Thursday, December 11, 2014
The Convener

The professors agree with each other.



Devolution (Further Powers) Committee 11 December 2014 : Thursday, December 11, 2014
The Convener

Interestingly, we are considering whether to hear from the Scottish Trades Union Congress, the churches and the Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations in January, and I think that that might be a way in which the committee can help with the discussion that you have referred to and improve the situation.

We have just over 20 minutes left, so we need to move on to the area of welfare.



Devolution (Further Powers) Committee 11 December 2014 : Thursday, December 11, 2014
The Convener

As Drew Smith no longer wishes to ask a supplementary question, it is Tavish Scott next.



Devolution (Further Powers) Committee 11 December 2014 : Thursday, December 11, 2014
The Convener

I have a straightforward question for Charlie Jeffery and others. We heard last week from the Secretary of State for Scotland that the process could be concluded by early 2016. In your view, can the legislation be passed by the time of the next Scottish Parliament election? That would be quite important.



Devolution (Further Powers) Committee 11 December 2014 : Thursday, December 11, 2014
The Convener

That was a small supplementary, was it? [Laughter.]



Devolution (Further Powers) Committee 11 December 2014 : Thursday, December 11, 2014
The Convener

We will spend another 10 or 15 minutes on this issue and then we need to move on to welfare. Linda Fabiani says that she has a very small supplementary on the issue.
