Decision on Taking Business in Private

The Convener (James Dornan)

Good morning, and welcome to the ninth meeting in 2021 of the Local Government and Communities Committee. Please ensure that all mobile phones are on silent. I remind members to wait a few moments after being called to speak, to allow broadcasting to operate their cameras and microphones.

We have apologies from Andy Wightman for agenda items 1 and 2, but he will join the committee at item 3.

Agenda item 1 is consideration of whether to take agenda item 5 in private. Item 5 is consideration of the evidence that the committee will hear on the Fair Rents (Scotland) Bill. As the committee is meeting remotely, rather than asking whether everyone agrees, I will ask whether anyone objects. If there is silence, I will assume that members are content. Does anyone object?

As no member has indicated otherwise, the committee agrees to take item 5 in private.
