National Galleries of Scotland Bill

Amendments for Consideration Stage of the National Galleries of Scotland Bill may now be lodged with the clerks to the National Galleries of Scotland Bill Committee, David Cullum (Room G11 Committee Chambers, extn. 85951), Alison Campbell (Room G10 extn. 85277) and Zoé Dean (Room G11 extn. 85417). The clerks should be consulted about the wording and admissibility of amendments.

Under Rules 9A.9.7 and 9A.9.9 only members of the National Galleries of Scotland Bill Committee may lodge amendments to the Bill at Consideration Stage and participate in the proceedings of the Committee.

The last day on which amendments may be lodged is two days before the Stage. Amendments may be lodged until 4.30 pm on any sitting day, except on the last day when the deadline is 2.00 pm (Rule 9.10.2). Members are requested to lodge amendments in good time before the beginning of the Stage, and as early as possible during the day.

It is expected that Consideration Stage proceedings will be on Wednesday 12 March. The Committee expects to complete Consideration Stage on that day and therefore all amendments to the Bill should be lodged by 2.00 pm Monday 10 March.
