Standards, Procedures and Public Appointments Committee 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 2014
Margaret McDougall (West Scotland) (Lab) The event was interesting. The attendees were from the voluntary sector and organisations that support people. For example, there were attendees from a domestic violence support group.

Standards, Procedures and Public Appointments Committee 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 2014
Margaret McDougall Let us move us on to people’s understanding of amendments and why they have been lodged. Do you have any suggestions about how the consideration of amendments in committee and the chamber could be made more transparent?



Standards, Procedures and Public Appointments Committee 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 2014
Margaret McDougall Are you saying that you favour the idea of publishing amendments with a short explanation of the policy thinking behind them?



Standards, Procedures and Public Appointments Committee 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 2014
