The Convener (John Scott)
I welcome everyone to the Delegated Powers and Law Reform Committee’s 12th meeting in session 5. Apologies have been received from Stuart McMillan.
I welcome to the committee Alison Harris, who is replacing Rachael Hamilton. In accordance with section 3 of the code of conduct, I invite Alison to declare any relevant interests.
Alison Harris (Central Scotland) (Con)
Thank you for welcoming me to the committee. I have no relevant interests that I feel it necessary to declare. Everything has been declared in my entry in the register of members’ interests.
That is great—thank you.
Decision on Taking Business in Private
Under agenda item 2, it is proposed that the committee agree to take items 6 and 7 in private. Item 6 is consideration of the committee’s first quarterly report for 2016-17 and item 7 provides an opportunity to discuss aspects of the committee’s work programme. Does the committee agree to consider those items in private?
Members indicated agreement.
