        • The Convener (Cathy Peattie):
          Good morning and welcome to the first meeting of the Equal Opportunities Committee in this new year. I wish everyone a happy new year. Before we start thinking about the next holiday, we will have to get down to work. We have received apologies from Margaret Smith.

          It is recommended that we discuss agenda items 3 and 4 in private. Item 3 refers to a draft report and item 4 refers to a claim for witnesses' expenses. Do members agree to discuss items 3 and 4 in private?

          Members indicated agreement.

          • The Convener:
            Item 2 is subordinate legislation. The clerks have circulated a paper on the Race Relations Act 1976 (Statutory Duties) (Scotland) Amendment Order 2003 (SSI 2003/566). The committee cannot amend the order and no motion to annul has been lodged. Are members content to agree to the order?
