Business Motion

The Presiding Officer (Ken Macintosh)

The next item of business is consideration of business motion S5M-24259, in the name of Graeme Dey, on behalf of the Parliamentary Bureau, setting out a timetable for the stage 3 consideration of the Defamation and Malicious Publication (Scotland) Bill. I invite Graeme Dey to move the motion.

Motion moved,

That the Parliament agrees that, during stage 3 of the Defamation and Malicious Publication (Scotland) Bill, debate on groups of amendments shall, subject to Rule 9.8.4A, be brought to a conclusion by the time limit indicated, that time limit being calculated from when the stage begins and excluding any periods when other business is under consideration or when a meeting of the Parliament is suspended (other than a suspension following the first division in the stage being called) or otherwise not in progress:

Groups 1 to 5: 45 minutes.—[Graeme Dey]

Motion agreed to.
