Adult Safeguarding Bill 2017: First Stage

I move:

That leave be granted to introduce a Bill entitled an Act for the purposes of making further and better provision for the care and protection of adults who are at risk; to establish the national adult safeguarding authority; to require certain persons to make reports to the national adult safeguarding authority in respect of adults at risk of abuse or harm in certain circumstances; and to provide for related matters.

Is there a seconder?

I second the proposal.

Question put and agreed to.

When is it proposed to take Second Stage?

Is that agreed? Agreed.

Second Stage ordered for Tuesday, 4 April 2017.
