HC Deb 21 March 2000 vol 346 c526W
25. Mr. Savidge

To ask the Advocate-General if she will make a statement on the arrangements for considering whether Bills passed by the Scottish Parliament are within its legislative competence. [114033]

The Advocate-General for Scotland

I receive copies of all Bills introduced to and passed by the Scottish Parliament to enable me to consider whether their provisions are within the legislative competence of the Scottish Parliament. Similar arrangements enable all UK Departments with an interest to do likewise.
