Succession (Amendment) Bill 2015: First Stage

I move:

That leave be granted to introduce a Bill entitled an Act to amend the Succession Act 1965 so as to provide for the assignment of property rights deriving from a joint tenancy in circumstances where one co-owner is unlawfully killed by another co-owner and for that purpose to amend the Succession Act 1965.

The Bill is worthy of consideration urgently because the number of cases to which it would apply require a great deal of attention.

I second the proposal.

Question put and agreed to.

When is it proposed to take Second Stage?

Next Wednesday, 11 March 2015.

Is that agreed? Agreed.
