Meeting of the Parliament 26 February 2015 : Thursday, February 26, 2015
Nigel Don (Angus North and Mearns) (SNP)

I am grateful to the minister for his statement. I recognise that he is doing a lot about the physical supply within the country. To extend Graeme Dey’s point, what does the minister feel that he can do, presumably with the Home Office, to deal with what will happen, which is internet sale and supply, which will only be worked out through international discussion?



Delegated Powers and Law Reform Committee 24 February 2015 : Tuesday, February 24, 2015
The Convener

That completes the agenda. Our next meeting will be next week.

Meeting closed at 11:39.  

Delegated Powers and Law Reform Committee 24 February 2015 : Tuesday, February 24, 2015
The Convener

Agenda item 5 is consideration of the delegated powers provisions in the Welfare Funds (Scotland) Bill after stage 2. The committee will have noted that the Scottish Government has provided a supplementary delegated powers memorandum, and members will have seen the briefing paper.

Stage 3 consideration of the bill is due to take place on Tuesday 3 March. As the deadline for lodging amendments is 4.30 pm tomorrow, the committee may wish to agree on its conclusions today.

The committee may wish to note that the amendments to the bill’s powers that have been made in sections 4(2C), 4(5), 5(1) and 7(3) implement recommendations that were made in the committee’s report at stage 1.

Does the committee agree to report that it is content with the provisions in the bill that have been amended at stage 2 to insert or substantially alter provisions conferring powers to make subordinate legislation or any other delegated power?

Members indicated agreement.



Delegated Powers and Law Reform Committee 24 February 2015 : Tuesday, February 24, 2015
The Convener

Are we content to note the response and, if necessary, to reconsider the bill after stage 2?

Members indicated agreement.



Delegated Powers and Law Reform Committee 24 February 2015 : Tuesday, February 24, 2015
The Convener

Thank you, colleagues. We are unanimous in our view that we do not want to drop the matter, as it might give rise to significant issues. I hear what the committee says. If I get such an opportunity, I will take it; others might be able to do so. We will just have to see how the stage 1 debate goes—who gets to speak is not within our gift.

Are members comfortable with that approach?

Members indicated agreement.



Delegated Powers and Law Reform Committee 24 February 2015 : Tuesday, February 24, 2015
The Convener

Agenda item 4 is consideration of the Scottish Government’s response to the committee’s stage 1 report on the Prisoners (Control of Release) (Scotland) Bill. Members have seen the briefing paper and the response from the Scottish Government.

Do members have any comments?



Delegated Powers and Law Reform Committee 24 February 2015 : Tuesday, February 24, 2015
The Convener

No points have been raised by our legal advisers on the order. Is the committee content with it?

Members indicated agreement.
