Business Motion

The Deputy Presiding Officer (Liam McArthur)

In my eagerness to get us into the guts of the substance of the amendments, I unfortunately bypassed consideration of business motion S6M-05228, in the name of George Adam, on behalf of the Parliamentary Bureau, setting out a timetable for stage 3 consideration of the Coronavirus (Recovery and Reform) (Scotland) Bill.

Let me turn back time and invite any member who wishes to speak against the motion to press their request-to-speak button now. I call on George Adam to move the motion.

It is the story of my life, Presiding Officer—always forgotten.

The Deputy Presiding Officer

I am glad that we have been able to rectify that.

Motion moved,

That the Parliament agrees that, during stage 3 of the Coronavirus (Recovery and Reform) (Scotland) Bill, debate on groups of amendments shall, subject to Rule 9.8.4A, be brought to a conclusion by the time limits indicated, those time limits being calculated from when the stage begins and excluding any periods when other business is under consideration or when a meeting of the Parliament is suspended (other than a suspension following the first division in the stage being called) or otherwise not in progress:

Groups 1 to 3: 1 hour 15 minutes

Groups 4 and 5: 2 hours 30 minutes

Groups 6 to 8: 3 hours 15 minutes

Groups 9 to 11: 4 hours

Groups 12 and 13: 5 hours.—[George Adam]

Motion agreed to.

We have righted that wrong.
