Michael Matheson and Christine Grahame raised one or two issues there. The debate about whether the terminology should be "may" or "is appropriate" is interesting, because neither is a terribly precise form of language. "May" is an enabling term, whereas "is appropriate" is perhaps more a term of judgment.
I appreciate the point that Michael Matheson seeks to make, but the Executive is not persuaded that the amendment would make a material difference to the way in which the tribunal operates or that it would hamper the tribunal's capacity to fulfil its purpose. I am happy to consider the possibility of addressing the issue in part when we consider the code of practice and any final guidance to be issued. I can give that undertaking, but I cannot at this stage give an undertaking that we will bring forward anything specific or concrete. However, I will ensure that we approach the matter with an open mind.
Amendment 20 agreed to.
Amendment 62 moved—[Angus MacKay].
