Parliamentary Bureau Motions

The Presiding Officer

The next item of business is consideration of three Parliamentary Bureau motions. I ask Graeme Dey, on behalf of the Parliamentary Bureau to move motion S5M-13735, on variation to business motion procedure; S5M-13736, on committee meeting times; and S5M-13737, on committee membership.

Motions moved,

That the Parliament agrees that, in relation to any debate on a business motion setting out a business programme taken on Wednesday 5 September, the second sentence of rule 8.11.3 is suspended and replaced with “Any Member may speak on the motion at the discretion of the Presiding Officer”.

That the Parliament agrees that, under Rule 12.3.3B of Standing Orders, the Justice Committee can meet, if necessary, at the same time as a meeting of the Parliament from 1.00pm to 2.30pm on Thursday 6 September 2018 for the purpose of taking evidence from the Secretary of State for Scotland on the implications for the Scottish justice system of the UK’s exit from the European Union.

That the Parliament agrees that Mark Ruskell be appointed to replace Patrick Harvie as a member of the Standards, Procedures and Public Appointments Committee.—[Graeme Dey]
