Sentencing (Pre-consolidation Amendments) Bill

The next item of business is consideration of a legislative consent motion. I ask Humza Yousaf to move motion S5M-21260, on the Sentencing (Pre-consolidation Amendments) Bill.

Motion moved,

That the Parliament agrees that the relevant provisions of the Sentencing (Pre-consolidation Amendments) Bill, introduced in the House of Lords on 21 January 2020, relating to the transfer of community orders and suspended sentence orders imposed by courts in England and Wales to Scotland, so far as these matters fall within the legislative competence of the Scottish Parliament, should be considered by the UK Parliament.—[Humza Yousaf]
