In September 2016, the Scottish Parliament’s European and External Relations Committee opened an inquiry into the impact of the EU referendum result of 23 June on Scotland.

The remit of the European and External Relations Committee was to consider and report on:

  • Proposals for European Union legislation
  • The implementation of European Communities and European Union legislation
  • Any European Communities or European Union issue
  • The development and implementation of the Scottish Administration’s links with countries and territories outside Scotland, the European Union (and its institutions) and other international organisations
  • Co-ordination of the international activities of the Scottish Administration
