Regulation of Care (Scotland) Bill

Amendments for Stage 2 of the Regulation of Care (Scotland) Bill may now be lodged with Jennifer Smart, Clerk to the Health and Community Care Committee (Room 2.05 Committee Chambers, extn. 85210), Irene Fleming, Senior Assistant Clerk, (Room 2.05 extn. 85219) or Joanna Hardy, Assistant Clerk (Room 2.05 extn. 85238). Clerks should be consulted about the wording and admissibility of amendments. Members should refer to Rule 17.4 for instructions on how amendments may be lodged.

The deadline for lodging Stage 2 amendments is 2 sitting days before each day of proceedings at that stage (Rule 9.10.2). Hence the deadline for a Wednesday committee meeting is 5.30 pm on the Monday before the meeting. The first day of Stage 2 proceedings will be on Wednesday 28 March 2001. Members are advised to lodge amendments in good time before the beginning of the Stage, and as early as possible during the day. The deadline is therefore 5:30pm on Monday 26 March 2001.
