Justice Committee 24 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 24, 2014
The Convener (Christine Grahame) Good morning and welcome to the Justice Committee’s 20th meeting in 2014. I ask everyone to switch off mobile phones and other electronic devices as they interfere with the broadcasting system. No apologies have been received.

Under item 1, I invite members to agree to consider item 4, wh...

Justice Committee 24 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 24, 2014
The Convener Item 1 is consideration of three negative instruments. The purpose of the first set of regulations is to add and remove certain police stations from the list of prescribed stations for sex offenders who are subject to the notification requirements in part 2 of the Sexual Offences Act 2003. The Deleg...

Justice Committee 24 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 24, 2014
The Convener I have to say that the 22-mile journey from Girvan to Ayr is not too bad, given that there is a good bus connection.

Nobody else wishes to make any comments, so are members content to make no recommendation in relation to the regulations?



Justice Committee 24 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 24, 2014
The Convener It is on the record.

I take it that the committee agrees to make no recommendation.

Members indicated agreement.



Justice Committee 24 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 24, 2014
The Convener The second instrument rectifies, with retrospective effect, errors contained in the Firefighters’ Pension Scheme (Scotland) Amendment (No 2) Order 2014, which the committee considered on 20 May. The Delegated Powers and Law Reform Committee did not raise any concerns with us on the order.


Justice Committee 24 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 24, 2014
The Convener The final instrument corrects an erroneous cross-reference in the Adults with Incapacity (Supervision of Welfare Guardians etc by Local Authorities) (Scotland) Amendment Regulations 2014. Again, there were no comments from the Delegated Powers and Law Reform Committee. Do members have any comments t...

Justice Committee 24 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 24, 2014
The Convener Yes. I think we would all agree with that. We regularly get drafting errors—minor and otherwise. It is important to put that on the record, because we have to come back to these things, which takes up time.

Are members content to make no recommendation in relation to the regulations?

Justice Committee 24 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 24, 2014
The Convener Item 3 is consideration of two petitions. PE1510, by Jody Curtis, on behalf of emergency service and non-emergency service call centres, calls on the Scottish Parliament to undertake a committee inquiry into the closure of police, fire and non-emergency service centres north of Dundee. PE1511, by La...

Justice Committee 24 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 24, 2014
The Convener The Public Petitions Committee did not take evidence from the petitioners.

Rather than selecting a group of people to write to, we might put information on our website about the fact that, on 19 August, we will take evidence from the inspectorates and to say anyone can submit issues to us...

Justice Committee 24 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 24, 2014
The Convener I am advised that there are distribution lists, which will be used as well. I do not want to write to just one group. If we use the normal distribution lists and issue a general call for evidence, anyone who wants to give us information in advance of that session can do so. That does not close anyth...
