Mental Health (Scotland) Bill - Stage 2

In its seventh day of consideration of the Bill at Stage 2 the Health and Community Care Committee reached the end of section 212. The order of consideration agreed by the Committee means that the following sections will be considered on the eighth day, Tuesday 11 February: sections 92 to 99. The Committee will not proceed beyond the end of section 99 on that day. (If the Committee does not reach the end of section 99, it will begin on the ninth day at the point where it left off.) Similar targets for subsequent days will be announced in due course.

The last day on which amendments may be lodged for the 8th Marshalled List is Friday 7 February. 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). Members are advised to lodge amendments as early as possible during the day.

Amendments should be lodged with the clerks to the Committee, Jennifer Smart (Room 2.5 Committee Chambers, extn. 85210), Peter McGrath (Room 2.5 extn. 85224) and Graeme Elliott (Room 2.5 extn. 85247). The clerks should be consulted on the wording and admissibility of amendments.
