Policing and Crime Bill

The Presiding Officer (Ken Macintosh)

The next item of business is consideration of a legislative consent motion on the Policing and Crime Bill. I ask Michael Matheson to move motion S5M-02806.

Motion moved,

That the Parliament agrees that provisions of the Policing and Crime Bill, introduced in the House of Commons on 10 February 2016, which refer to cross-border powers of arrest, restoring littering powers of Scottish local authorities and to firearms, where these matters fall within the legislative competence of the Scottish Parliament or alter the legislative competence of the Scottish Parliament or the executive competence of the Scottish Ministers, should be considered by the UK Parliament.—[Michael Matheson]

The Presiding Officer

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