Meeting of the Parliament 23 April 2014 : Wednesday, April 23, 2014
Nigel Don (Angus North and Mearns) (SNP) I congratulate Stuart McMillan on securing the debate, because it is an extremely important issue. I confess that I knew very little about it, so I had to stop and think about it. While I did so, Brechin community council approached me to ask what could be done because it was concerned about such ga...

Meeting of the Parliament 23 April 2014 : Wednesday, April 23, 2014
Nigel Don Will the cabinet secretary tell us a bit more about the green cow project, which is looking at ways to reduce the amount of methane from our livestock?



Meeting of the Parliament 23 April 2014 : Wednesday, April 23, 2014
Nigel Don (Angus North and Mearns) (SNP) I will try to make it a supplementary to the previous three questions—



Delegated Powers and Law Reform Committee 22 April 2014 : Tuesday, April 22, 2014
The Convener

The committee agreed that no points arose on the instruments.

The committee may wish to note that SSI 2014/102 corrects the errors in SSI 2014/99.

That brings us to agenda item 6, so I move the meeting into private.

Delegated Powers and Law Reform Committee 22 April 2014 : Tuesday, April 22, 2014
The Convener The committee may, however, wish to note that the Lord President’s private office has laid a corrective instrument that rectifies the drafting errors and clarifies the meaning of rule 6(2)(a). The corrective instrument, which is also before the committee today, revokes the present instrument prior t...

Delegated Powers and Law Reform Committee 22 April 2014 : Tuesday, April 22, 2014
The Convener A further point has been raised by our legal advisers, which is that the meaning of rule 6(2)(a) could be clearer. Rule 6(2)(a)(ii) refers to

“the date on which the tribunal notifies the judicial office holder that it has determined an application under rule 5(1)”.

Under rule 5...

Delegated Powers and Law Reform Committee 22 April 2014 : Tuesday, April 22, 2014
The Convener We come to agenda item 5. Our legal advisers have raised a number of points in relation to the instrument. First, it is defectively drafted in a number of respects. In rule 2, “presenting officer” is defined as the person appointed under rule 9(1), when the correct reference should be to rule 8(1). ...

Delegated Powers and Law Reform Committee 22 April 2014 : Tuesday, April 22, 2014
The Convener Indeed.



Delegated Powers and Law Reform Committee 22 April 2014 : Tuesday, April 22, 2014
The Convener We come to agenda item 4. The meaning of the transitional provision in article 3 could be clearer in that it would have been clearer to have referred to schedule 2B to the Further and Higher Education (Scotland) Act 2005 rather than just to schedule 2B to the 2005 act. In particular, it would have b...

Delegated Powers and Law Reform Committee 22 April 2014 : Tuesday, April 22, 2014
The Convener We come to agenda item 3. No points have been raised by our legal advisers on the draft regulations, written submissions on which members have before them. If members have no comments, is the committee content with the draft regulations?

Members indicated agreement.
