Reporting

32. The 2019 Act requires Scotland's Climate Assembly to set out its recommendations in a report, lay the report before the Scottish Parliament and send a copy of the report to the Scottish Ministers. 

33. The 2019 Act requires Scotland's Climate Assembly to lay its report before the Scottish Parliament by 28 February 2021. The Coronavirus (Scotland) (No. 2) Act 2020 has amended this requirement by stating that, if for a reason relating to coronavirus the report is unable to be laid before Parliament by 28 February 2021, it should instead by laid as soon as reasonably practicable after that date.

34. The 2019 Act requires Scottish Ministers to, within six months of receiving a copy of the report, publish a statement setting out how the Scottish Government intends to respond to the recommendations made in it.
