The Deputy Convener

Agenda item 6 is consideration of the Railway Policing (Scotland) Bill at stage 2. In its stage 1 report, the committee recommended that the power in new section 85C(1) should be amended at stage 2 to be subject to the affirmative procedure. The Scottish Government accepted that recommendation and lodged amendments at stage 2 to give effect to it. Accordingly, does the committee agree to welcome the stage 2 amendments, which meet the terms of the committee’s recommendations?

Members indicated agreement.

That ends the public part of the meeting.
