Before we begin, I remind members that the young people's health congress, which will be attended by delegates from schools throughout Scotland, will be held in the chamber tomorrow. I draw members' attention to the presence in the public galleries of a number of the young delegates who will participate. The deputy presiding officers and I trust that they will be a good deal quieter than the members were in the chamber this afternoon.
