Public Service Pensions and Judicial Offices Bill

The Presiding Officer (Alison Johnstone)

The next item of business is consideration of a legislative consent motion. I ask Keith Brown to move motion S6M-02975, on the Public Service Pensions and Judicial Offices Bill, which is United Kingdom legislation.

Motion moved,

That the Parliament agrees that the relevant provisions of the Public Service Pensions and Judicial Offices Bill, introduced in the House of Lords on 19 July 2021 relating to enabling devolved judicial offices to be added to a judicial pension scheme at the request of the Scottish Ministers, the increase in the mandatory retirement age for devolved judicial office holders in Scotland to 75 and the addition of provisions on the determination and payment of allowances, so far as these matters fall within the legislative competence of the Scottish Parliament or alter the executive competence of the Scottish Ministers, should be considered by the UK Parliament.—[Keith Brown]

The question on the motion will be put at decision time.
