Decision on Taking Business in Private

The Convener (Bill Bowman)

Good morning. I welcome everyone to the 11th meeting in 2021, and the final scheduled meeting in session 5, of the Delegated Powers and Law Reform Committee.

Before we begin, I would like to take the opportunity to thank all committee members for their diligence and support, as well as all previous committee members who have contributed to the committee’s work this session. I also thank the clerks and the facilities management and security staff, as well, of course, as the broadcasting staff, without whom it would not be possible for us to be having this meeting.

As we are meeting online, it will be more challenging for members to indicate agreement to the items that are discussed. Therefore, I ask members to raise their hand if they are not content with the question that is being put, or if they wish to speak about the instrument in question.

The first agenda item is a decision on whether to take items 6 and 7 in private. Is the committee content to take those items in private?

No member has indicated that they are not content or that they wish to speak, so that is agreed.
