5th Report 2001

Report on Convention Rights (Compliance) (Scotland) Bill

   
   

SP Paper 292

Session 1 (2001)

   
  1. The Finance Committee considered the Convention Rights (Compliance) (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.
