Meeting of the Parliament

Meeting date: Thursday, May 25, 2023


Decision Time

The Presiding Officer (Alison Johnstone)

There is one question to be put as a result of today’s business.

The question is, that motion S6M-09146, in the name of Finlay Carson, on behalf of the Rural Affairs and Islands Committee, on future agriculture policy in Scotland, be agreed to.

Motion agreed to,

That the Parliament recognises the need for Scotland to develop its own agriculture policy and support post-EU exit; notes the Scottish Government’s Vision for Agriculture, which was published in March 2022, and its intention to introduce an agriculture bill in the next parliamentary year, and welcomes the Rural Affairs and Islands Committee’s evidence taking in order to fully understand the broad range of policy areas that are fundamental to a successful future agriculture policy and to ensure that the agriculture sector is a thriving part of the economy, which helps to tackle climate change, protects biodiversity and, most importantly, puts food on plates.

Meeting closed at 16:59.
