Social Security Committee 21 May 2020

Agenda: Decision on Taking Business in Private, Social Security Administration and Tribunal Membership (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1


Decision on Taking Business in Private

Welcome to the 10th meeting in 2020 of Scotland’s Social Security Committee. We have received no apologies. Mr Balfour is having some issues with his information technology, but he will join us shortly. Other than that, we will have a full house this morning. As I did privately before the start of the broadcast, I thank the clerking team, broadcasters and witnesses for their efforts to ensure that the committee meeting can take place. Thank you to everyone.

Agenda item 1 is a decision on taking item 3, our consideration of the evidence that we will hear today, and item 4, on the committee’s annual report, in private. Given the technical issues of the broadcast, unless I hear anyone say anything I will take that decision as agreed.

No one has spoken, so the committee agrees to take items 3 and 4 in private.
