Scottish Qualifications Authority Bill

As previously announced, amendments for Stage 2 of the Scottish Qualifications Authority Bill may now be lodged with the Education, Culture and Sport Committee clerks, Martin Verity (Room 2.7, Committee Chambers, extn. 85402), Judith Evans (Room 2.7, Committee Chambers, extn. 85214) and Ian Cowan (Room 2.7, Committee Chambers, extn. 85222). The clerks should be consulted about the wording and admissibility of amendments.

The last day on which amendments may be lodged is 2 days before the Stage. Amendments may be lodged until 4.30 pm on any sitting day (or day of recess when the office of the Clerk is open), 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 in good time before the beginning of the Stage and as early as possible during the day.

It is expected that Stage 2 proceedings will be on Tuesday 16 April and therefore the deadline for lodging amendments for the Marshalled List will be 2.00 pm on Friday 12 April.
