Question ref. S6W-05162
Asked by: Katy Clark, West Scotland, Scottish Labour
Date lodged: 21 December 2021


To ask the Scottish Government, further to the answer to question S6W-03128 by Shona Robison on 1 October 2021, and in light of the progression of the Nationality and Borders Bill in the UK Parliament, whether it has given further consideration to whether any amendments to the Bill could trigger the need for a legislative consent memorandum, and, if so, in respect of what provisions of the Bill.

Current status: Answered by Shona Robison on 18 January 2022


The Scottish Government continues to monitor the Nationality and Borders Bill and has not yet concluded legislative consent consideration, following amendments made to the Bill in December.

If we conclude that any provisions in the Bill are on matters within the legislative competence of the Scottish Parliament, or change the legislative competence of the Scottish Parliament or executive competence of the Scottish Ministers, I will seek to lodge a legislative consent memorandum and will set out the relevant provisions for the consideration of the Scottish Parliament.
