Amendment 1 is purely a drafting amendment that results from the removal of a subsection by an Executive amendment at stage 2. The words "such an application" no longer make sense and amendment 1 spells out the type of application that is meant.
Amendment 2 is a tidying-up amendment. The bill amends section 71 of the Criminal Procedure (Scotland) Act 1995 to allow a pre-trial hearing in a sheriff-and-jury case to be used for the determination of a character or sexual evidence
Amendment 3 adds character and sexual history evidence applications to the list.
