Children and Social Work Bill

The Deputy Presiding Officer (Christine Grahame)

The next item of business is consideration of a legislative consent motion. I ask John Swinney to move motion S5M-03461, on the Children and Social Work Bill.

Motion moved,

That the Parliament agrees that amendments to the Children and Social Work Bill, introduced in the House of Commons on 7 December 2016, which relate to the cross-border placement of children in secure accommodation, so far as these provisions fall within the legislative competence of the Scottish Parliament, should be considered by the UK Parliament.—[John Swinney]

The Deputy Presiding Officer

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