Very diplomatic, Mr McCabe. Schedule 7 is consequential to the previous clause. It sets out the terrorist offences within the scope of the new terrorism sentence in Scotland, and will be inserted as schedule 5ZB to the Criminal Procedure (Scotland) Act 1995.

The question is that schedule 7 be the Seventh schedule to the Bill. As many as are of that opinion, say aye.

Hon. Members::

Aye!

That’s certainly better. To the contrary, no. I think the ayes have it, the ayes have it.

Question put and agreed to.

Schedule 7 accordingly agreed to.
