Scotland Bill — Remuneration of members of the Parliament and Executive — 19 May 1998

I beg to move amendment No. 46, in page 20, line 8, at end insert--

'( ) The First Minister shall not seek Her Majesty's approval for any appointment under this section without the agreement of the Parliament.'.

Amendment No. 46 fulfils the commitment that I gave in Committee to my hon. Friend the Member for Falkirk, East (Mr. Connarty), and will provide a role for the Parliament in the appointment of junior Scottish Ministers. That will bring the appointment procedure for junior Ministers into line with that for other Scottish Ministers.

The Bill requires the Parliament to nominate the First Minister, who will be appointed by the Queen on the recommendation of the Presiding Officer. The First Minister will have to obtain the agreement of the Parliament and the approval of Her Majesty before appointing Scottish Ministers, and the amendment provides a similar role for the Parliament in the appointment of junior Scottish Ministers.

Amendment agreed to.

I beg to move amendment No. 133, in page 20, line 18, leave out from 'appoint' to end of line 19 and insert

'persons to be members of the staff of the Scottish Administration'.

Amendment agreed to.

(2) It is outside devolved competence--

(a) to make any provision by subordinate legislation which would be outside the legislative competence of the Parliament if it were included in an Act of the Scottish Parliament, or

(b) to confirm or approve any subordinate legislation containing such provision.

(3) In the case of any function other than a function of making, confirming or approving subordinate legislation, it is outside devolved competence to exercise the function (or exercise it in any way) so far as a provision of an Act of the Scottish Parliament

conferring the function (or, as the case may be, conferring it so as to be exercisable in that way) would be outside the legislative competence of the Parliament'.
