  • Take no further action other than to pass the submissions on to the lead committee for its consideration.
  • Write to the lead Committee highlighting any areas of concern and suggesting that it may wish to raise them with the Scottish Government Minister responsible for the Bill.
  • Invite stakeholders who have provided responses to expand upon their submissions in oral evidence.
  • Invite Scottish Government officials to respond to the issues raised in oral evidence.
  • Publish a formal report to the lead committee highlighting any areas of concern and suggesting that it may wish to seek further information on them from the Scottish Government.
