There are three questions that will have to be put as a result of today's business. Before that happens, I will make an announcement about the voting system. As members noticed yesterday—I should have announced it yesterday—there has been a small change to the electronic voting consoles. From now on, when the voting period begins, the red "vote now" light will begin to flash. It will stop flashing when the member presses the button to record their vote. This change will allow members to confirm that their vote has definitely been registered—until now we have not had that facility. I should point out that members will still be able to change their vote, within the voting period, while the "vote now" button remains illuminated.

The third question is, that motion S1M-165, in the name of Jackie Baillie, on the voluntary sector, be agreed to.
Motion agreed to.
That the Parliament welcomes the Scottish Executive's recognition of the important role of the voluntary sector in Scottish society through the contribution it makes to economic prosperity, promoting social inclusion and encouraging active citizenship; endorses the Executive's commitment to create a stable infrastructure in which the voluntary sector can flourish, and welcomes the firm intention to work in partnership with the sector in delivering the Programme for Government.
