Decision on Taking Business in Private

The Convener (Margaret Mitchell)

Good morning, everyone, and welcome to the Justice Committee’s 24th meeting in 2017. We have received apologies from Liam McArthur. The committee’s clerks have been notified that the Cabinet Secretary for Justice will be five minutes late so, with members’ agreement, we will move to agenda item 5. Are we all agreed?

Members indicated agreement.

The Convener

Before we take agenda item 5, under agenda item 1, we must make a decision on whether to take agenda items 6 and 7 in private. Agenda item 6 is consideration of our approach to the scrutiny of the Offensive Behaviour at Football and Threatening Communications (Repeal) (Scotland) Bill at stage 1. Agenda item 7 is consideration of our work programme. Are we agreed that those two items should be taken in private?

Members indicated agreement.
