Decision on Taking Business in Private
Good morning and welcome to the sixth meeting in 2018 of the Equalities and Human Rights Committee. I make the usual request for mobile phones to be switched off and kept off the table.
Agenda item 1 is a decision on taking business in private. I seek the agreement of the committee to consider in private our approach to forthcoming legislation, correspondence on the audit and accountability framework for the United Kingdom and Scotland, the Children and Young People’s Commissioner Scotland’s draft revised strategic plan for 2018 to 2020 and issues relating to our human rights inquiry. Does the committee agree to take those items in private at future meetings?
Members indicated agreement.
Excellent—thank you so much.
