The purpose of amendment No 37 is to add at the end of paragraph (2) of Standing Order 9 the following words:

"The business adjourned shall be the first business when the Assembly next sits".

It would be difficult to cover all these issues in 10 minutes. I hope at some stage to speak to the other amendments. There is the further difficulty that there are many issues of more substance in this group, and we might be juggling too many balls at one time. That concerns me.
