HC Deb 09 July 2002 vol 388 c835W
30. Mr. Connarty

To ask the Advocate-General what role she has in relation to challenges which are alleged to be contraventions of European law. [65327]

The Advocate-General

Court actions against the Scottish Executive or challenges to legislation of the Scottish Parliament alleging failure to comply with European law must be intimated to me as devolution issues. I then decide whether it would be appropriate for me, as Advocate-General, to intervene. That will depend on the facts and circumstances of each case.
