The Herald Scotland has reported that Holyrood's Justice Committee will examine a proposal to repeal legislation aimed at tackling sectarian behaviour at football.

MSPs are looking for views and opinions on MSP James Kelly's bid to repeal the Offensive Behaviour at Football and Threatening Communications (Scotland) Act. 

Last week saw Mr Kelly lodge his private members bill at the Scottish Parliament.

Justice Committee convener Margaret Mitchell said: "The Act has aroused strong and opposing views about its necessity and effectiveness.

"The Justice Committee is keen to hear the full range of opinions about this significant proposal to remove a law from the statute books."
