Licensing of Pavement Cafés Bill: Committee Stage Report

 

The Deputy Chairperson: We move to the draft report on the Licensing of Pavement Cafés Bill.  I remind members that the draft report was provided before last week's meeting and is in today's pack.  I advise members that the document in the pack is the main body of the report; the rest of the report will be made up of standard appendices, namely Hansard transcripts, minutes of the relevant meetings and written submissions from stakeholders.  I ask members whether they have any comments on the report.

 

I remind members that the Bill was agreed, clause by clause, at our meeting on 21 November and that amendments brought forward by the Minister were also agreed at that stage.  I advise the Committee that, today, we will agree the substantive text of the report as provided in draft form.  After that, the report can go to print.  The rest of the report will be made up of the cover page, contents, written submissions, minutes of proceedings and Hansard transcripts.  Is the Committee content that we now agree the report on the Licensing of Pavement Cafés Bill?
