At decision time the following motion was agreed to:

That the Parliament notes the conclusions and recommendations in the Public Petitions Committee’s 1st Report, 2014 (Session 4), Report on tackling child sexual exploitation in Scotland (SP Paper 449).

The Parliament also agreed to the relevant provisions of the Children and Families Bill, introduced in the House of Commons on 4 February 2013, relating to the retail packaging of tobacco, so far as these matters fall within the legislative competence of the Scottish Parliament or alter the executive competence of the Scottish Ministers, should be considered by the UK Parliament.
