Parliamentary Bureau Motions
The next item of business is consideration of two Parliamentary Bureau motions. I ask Joe FitzPatrick to move, en bloc, motion S5M-01860 on the establishment of a sub-committee and motion S5M-01861 on the meetings of the sub-committee.
That the Parliament agrees to establish a sub-committee of the Parliament as follows:
Name of Committee: Justice Sub-Committee on Policing.
Remit: To consider and report on the operation of the Police and Fire Reform (Scotland) Act 2012 as it relates to policing.
Duration: Until the end of the Parliamentary session.
Number of members: 7.
Membership: Mary Fee, John Finnie, Liam McArthur, Rona Mackay, Ben Macpherson, Margaret Mitchell, Stewart Stevenson.
That the Parliament agrees that, under Rule 12.3.3B of Standing Orders, the Justice Sub-Committee on Policing can meet, if necessary, at 1.00pm on a Thursday for the purpose of conducting a meeting of the sub-committee and that any meeting held under this Rule is concluded before the commencement of a meeting of the Parliament that afternoon.—[Joe FitzPatrick.]
The question on the motions will be put at decision time, to which we now come.
