The next item of business is consideration of business motion S3M-8197, in the name of Bruce Crawford, on behalf of the Parliamentary Bureau, setting out a timetable for stage 3 consideration of the Forced Marriage etc (Protection and Jurisdiction) (Scotland) Bill.

Motion moved,

That the Parliament agrees that, during Stage 3 of the Forced Marriage etc (Protection and Jurisdiction) (Scotland) Bill, debate on groups of amendments shall, subject to Rule 9.8.4A, be brought to a conclusion by the time limit indicated, that time limit being calculated from when the stage begins and excluding any periods when other business is under consideration or when a meeting of the Parliament is suspended (other than a suspension following the first division in the stage being called) or otherwise not in progress:

Groups 1 to 3: 10 minutes.—[Bruce Crawford.]

Motion agreed to.

The next item of business is consideration of business motion S3M-8198, in the name of Bruce Crawford, on behalf of the Parliamentary Bureau, setting out a timetable for the stage 3 consideration of the Double Jeopardy (Scotland) Bill. I ask Bruce Crawford to move the motion.

I will, for what I think will be the last occasion in the current session of Parliament, formally move the motion.

I move,

That the Parliament agrees that, during Stage 3 of the Double Jeopardy (Scotland) Bill, debate on groups of amendments shall, subject to Rule 9.8.4A, be brought to a conclusion by the time limit indicated, that time limit being calculated from when the stage begins and excluding any periods when other business is under consideration or when a meeting of the Parliament is suspended (other than a suspension following the first division in the stage being called) or otherwise not in progress:

Groups 1 and 2: 25 minutes.

Also for the last occasion in the session, I say that as no member has asked to speak against the business motion, the question is, that motion S3M-8198, in the name of Bruce Crawford, be agreed to.

Motion agreed to.
