Local Government, Housing and Planning Committee 22 June 2021

Agenda: Interests, Convener, Deputy Convener, Decision on Taking Business in Private, Legacy Paper



Agenda item 2 is to choose our convener. The procedure is explained in paper 2, which members should have.

The Parliament has agreed that only members of the Scottish Green Party are eligible for nomination as convener of the committee. I understand that Ariane Burgess is that party’s nominee.

Ariane Burgess was chosen as convener.

I congratulate Ariane on becoming the new convener of our committee, and I hand over the chair.

Thank you very much. I was delighted to hear the declarations of interests from councillors who are on our committee; I believe that Willie Coffey is a former councillor. I think that we are starting out with some great perspectives.
