Delegated Powers and Law Reform Committee

The Committee was established in June 2021. It focuses on:

  • checking secondary legislation coming before the Parliament for legal and technical accuracy
  • checking whether proposed secondary legislation in Bills is appropriate
  • reporting its findings to the Parliament so all laws and proposals for laws get proper oversight from MSPs
  • looking at certain Bills which are based on reports from the Scottish Law Commission. The Commission recommends changes to the law so it keeps pace with the way we live and work.
