Mid-Scotland and Fife Regional Vacancy

The Presiding Officer wishes to make the following announcement.

I have been informed by Mr Nick Johnston of his resignation as a Member of the Scottish Parliament. Under Rule 1.5.4 of the Standing Orders I have determined that the date of this vacancy is 10 August 2001.

As required by Article 87(1) of the Scottish Parliament (Elections Etc.) Order 1999 I have now sent a notice to the regional returning officer for Mid-Scotland and Fife region informing him of the vacancy so that he may ascertain the name of the person to fill the vacancy in accordance with Section 10 of the Scotland Act 1998, as modified by Article 88 of the Scottish Parliament (Elections Etc.) Order 1999.
