    Scottish Parliament Fact sheet

    Members’ Business by Subject and Party: Session 4

    24 March 2016

    Parliamentary Business: Historical Series

    This fact sheet provides a list of members’ business debates in the Scottish Parliament during Session 4. It is arranged by date, with the most recent date and link to the Official Report for the day of the debate appearing first. It also includes the motion number, name and party of the Member of the Scottish Parliament (MSP) and the subject of the debate. Members’ business is any item of business, other than a member’s bill, proposed by an MSP who is not a member of the Scottish Government or a junior Scottish Minister. This is generally a debate on an issue affecting a particular locality but could also be a debate on a general issue, or a procedural matter. A period of up to 45 minutes is set aside for such business at each meeting of the Parliament. By convention, the debate is on a motion, but the motion is not moved and the debate ends without a vote. Following the Reform of Parliamentary Business Inquiry, the number of Members’ Business debates increased from two to three a week. From 4 September 2012 Members’ Business takes place on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons after Decision Time and after First Minister’s Question Time on Thursdays. Previously Members’ Business took place on Wednesday and Thursday afternoons after Decision Time.
