The next item of business is consideration of motion S4M-15344, in the name of Alex Neil, on the Welfare Reform and Work Bill, which is United Kingdom legislation.

Motion moved,

That the Parliament agrees that the relevant provisions of the Welfare Reform and Work Bill, introduced in the House of Commons on 9 July 2015, relating to child poverty strategies and the Child Poverty and Social Mobility Commission, so far as these matters alter the executive competence of the Scottish Ministers or fall within the legislative competence of the Scottish Parliament, should be considered by the UK Parliament.—[Alex Neil.]

The question on the motion will be put at decision time.
