Rural Affairs, Islands and Natural Environment Committee

Meeting date: Wednesday, June 29, 2022

Agenda: Hunting with Dogs (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1, Subordinate Legislation


Subordinate Legislation

Vegetable Plant Material and Fruit Plant and Propagating Material (EU Exit) (Scotland) (Amendment) Regulations 2022 (SSI 2022/203)

Our second item of business is consideration of three instruments that are subject to the negative procedure. I refer members to paper 3. Do members have any comment on the instruments? Members have no comments.

Animals, Food and Feed, Plant Health, Plant Propagating Material and Seeds (Miscellaneous Amendments etc) Regulations 2022

The Convener

The next item is consideration of consent notifications on two United Kingdom statutory instruments. I refer members to paper 4 and page 38. Do members have any comments on either notification? Members have no comments.

In relation to the Aquatic Animal Health (Amendment) Regulations 2022, are members content with the proposal to write to the Scottish Government to ask how any disputes will be resolved between the three UK Administrations over amendments to relevant lists, and to highlight to the Constitution, Europe, External Affairs and Culture Committee the changing role for the Scottish Parliament as a result of that SI?

Members indicated agreement.

The Convener

Do we agree with the Scottish Government’s decision to consent to the provisions that are set out in the notifications being included in UK rather than Scottish subordinate legislation?

Members indicated agreement.

That concludes our business in public, and we move into private session.

11:58 Meeting continued in private until 12:51.
