Mr. Alasdair Morgan

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland for what reasons, prior to laying the Scottish Adjacent Waters Boundaries Order 1999 (S.I., 1999, No. 1126), his Department did not invite observations from the Scottish Parliament. [91074]

Dr. Reid

Observations were not invited from the Scottish Parliament because it did not exist when the Draft Order was laid before this Parliament on 8 March and debated by both Houses on 23 March.
