Decision on Taking Business in Private

The Convener (James Dornan)

Good morning. I welcome everyone to the Local Government and Communities Committee’s 25th meeting in 2020. I again thank the broadcasting office for its work in helping to organise the meeting. As always, I ask everyone to ensure that their mobile phone is in silent mode.

Agenda item 1 is to consider whether to take in private item 3, which is consideration of the evidence that we will hear today, and item 4, which is consideration of our approach to community outreach on the Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act 2015. Rather than asking whether every member agrees that we should take those items in private, I will instead ask whether any member objects. If there is silence, I will assume members’ consent. Does any member object?

As no member objects, we agree to take items 3 and 4 in private.
