Decision Time

Part of the debate – in the Scottish Parliament on 22nd December 2020.

Alert me about debates like this

The Presiding Officer:

The result of the division in the name of Michael Russell, on the UK Withdrawal from the European Union (Continuity) (Scotland) Bill, is: For 90, Against 29, Abstentions 0.

Motion agreed to,

That the Parliament agrees that the UK Withdrawal from the European Union (Continuity) (Scotland) Bill be passed.

The motion is agreed to, and therefore the UK Withdrawal from the European Union (Continuity) (Scotland) Bill is passed. [

Applause.

The next question is, that motion S5M-23631, in the name of Kate Forbes, on the Redress for Survivors (Historical Child Abuse in Care) (Scotland) Bill financial resolution, be agreed to.

Motion agreed to,

That the Parliament, for the purposes of any Act of the Scottish Parliament resulting from the Redress for Survivors (Historical Child Abuse in Care) (Scotland) Bill, agrees to any expenditure of a kind referred to in Rule 9.12.3(b) of the Parliament’s Standing Orders arising in consequence of the Act.

The final question is, that motion S5M-23777, in the name of Graeme Dey, on committee membership, be agreed to.

Motion agreed to,

That the Parliament agrees that—

Stuart McMillan be appointed to replace Angela Constance as a member of the Committee on the Scottish Government Handling of Harassment Complaints;

Joe FitzPatrick be appointed to replace Stuart McMillan as a member of the Delegated Powers and Law Reform Committee;

Fulton MacGregor be appointed to replace Angela Constance as a member of the Finance and Constitution Committee; and

Joe FitzPatrick be appointed to replace Fulton MacGregor as a member of the Equalities and Human Rights Committee.

That concludes decision time. There will be a short pause before we move on to a members’ business debate in the name of Keith Brown, on the £20 universal credit increase. I encourage members who are leaving the chamber to put their masks on, to observe social distancing rules and to follow the one-way systems that are in place around the Parliament.
