The Minister for Community Safety and Legal Affairs (Roseanna Cunningham) Yes. Thank you, convener. I will make a brief opening statement to explain what brought about the statutory instrument.

The order is required to fix a lacuna, which is just a loophole—



Justice Committee 17 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 17, 2014
