Decision Time

The Presiding Officer (Alison Johnstone)

There is one question to be put as a result of today’s business. The question is, that motion S6M-07487, in the name of Jackson Carlaw, on behalf of the Citizen Participation and Public Petitions Committee, on petition PE1865, which is on suspending all surgical mesh and fixation devices, be agreed to.

Motion agreed to,

That the Parliament notes public petition PE1865 on suspending the use of all surgical mesh and fixation devices while a review of all surgical procedures which use polyester, polypropylene or titanium is carried out, and guidelines for the surgical use of mesh are established.
