Meeting date: Wednesday, January 25, 2023


Public Order Bill

The Presiding Officer (Alison Johnstone)

The next item of business is consideration of a legislative consent motion. I ask Keith Brown to move motion S6M-07617, on the Public Order Bill, which is United Kingdom legislation.

Motion moved,

That the Parliament agrees that the relevant amendments of the Public Order Bill, introduced in the House of Lords on 9 November 2022, relating to the extension of existing powers at Part II of the Public Order Act 1986 to the British Transport Police (BTP) in Scotland for policing public processions and assemblies on the railway, so far as these matters fall within the legislative competence of the Scottish Parliament, should be considered by the UK Parliament.—[Keith Brown]

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