Standards, Procedures and Public Appointments Committee 26 May 2022 [Draft]

Agenda: Decision on Taking Business in Private, Future Parliamentary Procedures and Practices Inquiry


Decision on Taking Business in Private

Good morning. I apologise for the slight delay to the start of the 13th meeting in 2022 of the Standards, Procedures and Public Appointments Committee. We have received apologies from Edward Mountain MSP. In his place, we are joined by Sue Webber MSP.

Agenda item 1 is a decision on whether to take in private items 5, 6 and 7, as well as future consideration of the code of conduct rule changes, the draft report on future parliamentary procedures and practices and consideration of a revision to the directions to the Commissioner for Ethical Standards in Public Life in Scotland. Do we agree to take those items in private?

Members indicated agreement.

I am grateful. We will postpone items 2 and 3 to a future meeting, at a time to be agreed. That takes us to item 4.
