|SP Paper 45
Session 1 (1999)
The Committee considered the Adults with Incapacity (Scotland) Bill
which was referred for its consideration under Rule 9.12 of the Parliaments Standing
The Committee had before it the Financial Memorandum accompanying the
Bill on introduction (prepared in accordance with Rule 9.3) and the motion for a Financial
Resolution lodged by the Minister for Finance on Thursday, 4th November (S1M-254).
The Committee considers that the Bill contains provisions which
introduce new expenditure payable out of the Scottish Consolidated Fund. The Committee is
of the view, therefore, that the provisions of the legislation as introduced are
sufficient to require the Parliament by resolution to agree to that expenditure.
