Before we begin this morning's business, I will complete my response to yesterday's point of order from Shona Robison, who asked about an emergency question that I had declined. I passed the question, as a written question, with a request for an urgent answer. I understand that an answer was received yesterday. Is that correct?

I am not aware that I have received an answer. Do you know how it was communicated, Sir David?

In the normal manner, I dare say, but I was assured that the answer had been given yesterday.

I have checked my mail, but I will double-check; as far as I am aware, it has not arrived yet.

The Presiding Officer: Thank you very much.
