Citizen Participation and Public Petitions Committee 06 October 2021 [Draft]

Agenda: Interests, New Petitions, Continued Petitions



The Convener (Jackson Carlaw)

Good morning, and welcome to the fifth meeting in 2021 of the Citizen Participation and Public Petitions Committee.

Under agenda item 1, I want to welcome a new committee member who is replacing Tess White. Although she was not with us for very long, I very much thank Ms White for her contribution to the committee, and I know that she will have an on-going interest in a number of the petitions in which she was involved.

We have now been joined by Alexander Stewart. Mr Stewart, do you have any interests to declare before assuming your position?

Alexander Stewart (Mid Scotland and Fife) (Con)

I am delighted to join the committee, convener, and I have no interests appropriate to this committee to declare.

The Convener

Thank you very much. At this point, I should tell the committee that we will be taking evidence from ministers at about 11.30.
