Scotland Bill — Clause 53 — Consultation with Scottish Ministers On Renewable Electricity Incentive Schemes — 6 Jul 2015 at 21:45

MPs were considering the Scotland Bill[1]

The amendment rejected in this vote was:

  • Amendment 154, page 60, leave out lines 9 to 17

The amendment sought to remove subsection (2) from the proposed new clause for the Scotland Act 1998 which began:

The majority of MPs voted for a narrower set of circumstances in which the Secretary of State is required to consult with Scottish Ministers over renewable electricity incentive schemes.

  • 90C Renewable electricity incentive schemes: consultation
  • (1) The Secretary of State must consult the Scottish Ministers before—
  • (a) establishing a renewable electricity incentive scheme that applies in Scotland, or
  • (b) amending such a scheme as it relates to Scotland.
  • (2) Subsection (1) does not apply to amendments that appear to the Secretary of State to be minor or made only for technical or administrative reasons; and the Secretary of State is not to be taken to establish or amend a scheme by exercising a power under a scheme, other than a power that is exercisable subject to any parliamentary procedure.
