I am glad of the First Minister (Designate)’s intervention and that he is in a measure of agreement with me. In relation to Mr Dodds’s intervention about the Business Committee, I do recollect that a distinction was made regarding that committee. However, it would be best in these circumstances to proceed to delete the clause referring to composition, consider it further in the Standing Orders Committee, consult further about it and return with a fresh proposal.
