Criminal Justice (Scotland) Bill

The Justice 2 Committee’s eighth day of consideration of the Bill at Stage 2 will take place on Wednesday 18 December.

Amendments may be lodged until 4.30 pm on any sitting day, except on the last day when amendments may be lodged, when the deadline is 2.00 pm (Rule 9.10.2).

The Committee expects to conclude Stage 2 consideration on that day. Members should therefore lodge all remaining amendments to the Bill no later than 2.00 pm on Monday 16 December.

Amendments should be lodged with the clerks to the Committee, Gillian Baxendine (Room 3.09, Committee Chambers, extn. 85054), Irene Fleming (Room 3.10, extn. 85220) or Richard Hough (Room 3.10, extn. 85047). The clerks should be consulted about the wording and admissibility of amendments.
