4th Report 2001

Report on Regulation of Care (Scotland) Bill


SP Paper 285

Session 1 (2001)


  1. The Finance Committee considered the Regulation of Care (Scotland) Bill which was referred for its consideration under rule 9.12 of the Parliament’s Standing Orders.
  2. The Committee had before it the Financial Memorandum accompanying the Bill on introduction (prepared in accordance with Rule 9.3).
  3. The Committee was in agreement that the Bill contains provisions which introduce new expenditure payable out of the Scottish Consolidated Fund. The Committee is of the view, therefore, that the provisions of the legislation as introduced are sufficient to require the Parliament by resolution to agree to that expenditure.
