Interests

Good morning and welcome to the first meeting of the Writers to the Signet Dependants’ Annuity Fund Amendment (Scotland) Bill Committee. I remind all those present, including members, that mobile phones should be turned off.

The first item on our agenda is the declaration of interests and of impartiality. In accordance with section 3 of the code of conduct, I invite members to declare any interests relevant to the remit of the committee. I remind members that declarations should be brief but sufficiently detailed to make clear to any listener the nature of the interest.

In accordance with rule 9A.5.4A of the standing orders, I also invite members to declare that they will act impartially and will base decisions solely on the evidence and information that is provided to the committee. Members have been issued with a brief procedural note on what the declarations should include.

I can confirm that I do not have any declarable interests that are relevant to the remit of the committee, and I declare that I will act impartially and will base decisions solely on the evidence and information that is provided to the committee.

I invite Alison Harris and Tom Arthur to declare their interests and make their declarations of impartiality.

I have no declarable interests, and I declare that I will act impartially as a member of the committee and will base decisions solely on the evidence and information that is provided to the committee.

I can confirm that I have no declarable interests relevant to the remit of the committee. However, I take this opportunity to remind the committee that I am the parliamentary liaison officer to the Cabinet Secretary for Justice.

I declare that I will act impartially as a member of the committee and will base decisions solely on the evidence and information that is provided to the committee.
