The Reporting Period
5. Sections 23(7) and 24(4) of the 2020 Act provide that statements must be laid before the Scottish Parliament at the end of a period. The periods are described in sections 23(8) and 24(5) of the 2020 Act:
(a) the first period begins on Royal Assent,
(b) after that, a new period begins with the last day of the previous period,
(c) each period ends with the day falling 6 months after it began,
(d) if the previous period ended on the 29th, 30th or 31st of a month and the month falling 6 months later has no such days, the period ends on the last day of that month.
6. The 2020 Act received Royal Assent on 1 October 2020. This statement covers the period from 1 October 2020 – 1 April 2021.
