Members may be relieved to know that we have just received authorisation from the Secretary of State to continue through until midnight.

I draw Members’ attention, as I did on 1 March, to the fact that requests to speak in Adjournment debates can only be accepted up to the start of a sitting, and in the case of today, that was 10.30 am yesterday, as distinct from requests to speak on other motions, which are generally forthcoming throughout the sitting. I also apologise to those Members who were not told that their names had been accepted for the Adjournment debate.

Motion made:

That the Assembly do now adjourn. — [The Initial Presiding Officer]
