Agricultural Holdings (Scotland) Bill - Stage 2

In its second day of consideration of the Bill at Stage 2 on Tuesday 21 January, the Rural Development Committee reached the end of Part 5 of the Bill. The order of consideration agreed by the Committee means that consideration on the third day (Tuesday 28 January) will begin at the start of Part 7. The Committee will not proceed beyond the end of Part 7 of the Bill on that day. If the Committee does not reach the end of Part 7, it will begin on the fourth day (Tuesday 4 February) at the point where it left off. Similar targets for subsequent days will be announced in due course.

The deadline for lodging amendments for the third Marshalled List is 2.00 pm on Friday 24 January 2003.
