Education, Children and Young People Committee 20 April 2022 [Draft]

Agenda: Interests, Scottish Attainment Challenge Inquiry, British Sign Language Bill, Subordinate Legislation



Good morning, and welcome to the 11th meeting of the Education, Children and Young People Committee in 2022. I give a very warm welcome to Ruth Maguire, who is joining us this morning for the first time as a member of the committee. I also welcome Graeme Dey, who has become a member of the committee after previously participating as a substitute member. Ruth and Graeme are replacing Fergus Ewing and James Dornan. On behalf of all committee members, I thank James and Fergus for their contribution to the work of the committee this session.

As Ruth Maguire is joining us for the first time today, our first item of business is an invitation for her to declare any relevant interests.

Thank you, convener. I am very much looking forward to contributing to the committee’s important work. I have no relevant interests to declare at this time.

Thank you very much.
