I lend my support to the cabinet secretary’s amendments 61 and 126.
However, I will speak briefly against Daniel Johnson’s amendments 2 and 128.
As Liam McArthur does, I think that there are positive intentions behind them, but the bill is the wrong place for them. A lot of work has already been done on the subject, as we heard in evidence to the Justice Committee. There is good work on housing and employment, and as Daniel Johnson discussed at stage 2, around health. Those issues are best left to local service providers that do the job every day, rather than to MSPs and politicians. We need to move away from centralising such matters.
