Parliamentary Bureau Motion

The Presiding Officer (Ken Macintosh)

The next item of business is consideration of a Parliamentary Bureau motion. I ask Joe FitzPatrick to move motion S5M-03779, on the variation of standing orders.

Motion moved,

That the Parliament agrees that, subject to its agreement to the general principles of the Budget (Scotland) Bill, for the purposes of consideration of the Bill at stage 2, in Rule 9.10.2 of Standing Orders—

  • the word “third” be substituted for the word “fourth” in both places where it occurs, and

  • “16:30” be substituted for “12:00”.—[Joe FitzPatrick.]

The Presiding Officer

The question on the motion will be put at decision time.
