– in the Scottish Parliament at 2:36 pm on 30th October 2002.
Our next item of business is consideration of the business motion S1M-3514, in the name of Patricia Ferguson, on behalf of the Parliamentary Bureau, setting out a revised business programme. I call on Euan Robson to move the motion.
In advance of moving the business motion, I would like to inform the chamber that the Social Justice Committee completed stage 2 of the Debt Arrangement and Attachment (Scotland) Bill today. In the light of that, it will be proposed to the bureau next Tuesday that stage 3 of the bill will be taken on the afternoon of Wednesday 13 November. If that is agreed to, members will wish to be aware that business on that day may extend beyond 5 pm until completion of stage 3 of the bill.
That said, I move,
