Extension of power of the Law Society of Scotland to make rules

Financial Guidance and Claims Bill [Lords] – in a Public Bill Committee at 10:30 am on 6th February 2018.

Alert me about debates like this

“(1) The Treasury may by regulations amend section (

(a) all relevant claims management agreements;

(b) all relevant claims management activity;

(c) any description of relevant claims management agreement;

(d) any description of relevant claims management activity.

(2) The Treasury must obtain the consent of the Scottish Ministers before making regulations under subsection (1).

(3) Regulations under this section—

(a) are to be made by statutory instrument;

(b) may make incidental, supplemental or consequential provision.

(4) A statutory instrument containing regulations under this section may not be made unless a draft of the instrument has been laid before and approved by a resolution of each House of Parliament.”—

This new clause would permit the Treasury, with the consent of the Scottish Ministers, to make regulations which extend the power given to the Law Society of Scotland to make rules by NC4.

Brought up, read the First and Second time, and added to the Bill.
