Decision on Taking Business in Private

Good morning, everyone, and welcome to the Justice Committee’s eighth meeting in 2021. We have apologies from Liam McArthur, who hopes to join us later. We are joined by the Cabinet Secretary for Justice, Humza Yousaf, and his officials, and by Rachael Hamilton. I welcome them all.

We have a congested agenda that consists of consideration of two legislative consent memorandums, one bill at stage 2, two affirmative instruments, one negative instrument and two further matters of business. Is the committee content to take the last item, which is consideration of a note from the clerks about malicious prosecutions and the Crown Office, in private?

Members indicated agreement.
