Due to changes made to the official Scottish Parliament website at the start of 2011, our parser that used to fetch their web pages and convert them into more structured information has stopped working. We’re afraid we cannot give a timescale as to when we will be able to cover the Scottish Parliament again. Sorry for any inconvenience caused.
Parliamentary Bureau Motion
Euan Robson (Liberal Democrat)
Before I move the timetabling motion, I advise the chamber that the Presiding Officer has agreed to a request from the Executive for the Deputy First Minister to make a statement on the fire dispute. The statement will take place immediately after decision time. If it proves necessary to continue business beyond 7 pm to enable the statement to be made tonight, the Scottish Executive will move the necessary motion.
That the Parliament agrees that, at Stage 3 of the Debt Arrangement and Attachment (Scotland) Bill, debate on each part of the proceedings shall be brought to a conclusion by the time-limits indicated (each time-limit being calculated from when Stage 3 begins and excluding any periods when the meeting is suspended)— Groups 1 to 7 - no later than 1 hour 10 minutes Groups 8 to 11 - no later than 1 hour 40 minutes Groups 12 to 18 - no later than 2 hours 25 minutes Groups 19 to 23 - no later than 3 hours Groups 24 to 30 - no later than 3 hours 40 minutes Groups 31 to 34 - no later than 3 hours 55 minutes Motion to pass the Bill - no later than 4 hours 25 minutes.
