British Sign Language Bill

The Presiding Officer (Alison Johnstone)

The next item of business is consideration of motion S6M-04115, which is a legislative consent motion on the British Sign Language Bill, which is United Kingdom legislation. I invite Clare Haughey to move the motion.

Motion moved,

That the Parliament agrees that the relevant provisions of the British Sign Language Bill, introduced in the House of Commons on 16 June 2021, relating to the encouragement of the use of British Sign Language, so far as they fall within the legislative competence of the Scottish Parliament, should be considered by the UK Parliament.—[Clare Haughey]

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