No procedure or laid only SSIs
No procedure SSIs are also called laid only SSIs. They are often used to say when parts of the new Act should become law (when a bill is passed, it doesn’t always become law straight away).
No procedure SSIs are looked at by the DPLR committee who write a report about them. They can also be looked at by the lead committee but they don’t have to be.
The Parliament cannot stop a no procedure SSI. Committees can write a report to the Parliament with their concerns or raise issues with the Scottish Government, for example by:
- inviting a minister to answer questions at a committee meeting
- writing to the Scottish Government for more information
