- Decision on Taking Business in Private
- Cabinet Secretary for Finance and the Constitution
Good morning, colleagues, and welcome to the third meeting of the Finance Committee in the fifth session of the Scottish Parliament.
The membership of committees changes, and we have experienced changes since our previous meeting. I pay particular tribute to Mike Russell, who, as the committee’s convener, did a lot of work to establish the committee, and to Kate Forbes for her robust contributions in our first two meetings.
We have two new members to replace those who have resigned from the committee. I formally welcome to the committee Bruce Crawford and Maree Todd, and give them the opportunity to declare any relevant interests. Does Bruce Crawford have any relevant interests?
I have no relevant interests to declare.
Does Maree Todd have any relevant interests?
No, I have no relevant interests to declare.
Thank you very much.
