There are four questions to be put as a result of today's business. Before we start, I remind members to ensure that their cards are correctly inserted into their consoles, and that the flashing light in front of their card changes to a constant light once they have cast their votes.

The first question is, that motion S1M-2230, in the name of Tom McCabe, on the Local Government Committee, be agreed to.

Motion agreed to.

That the Parliament agrees that with effect from 20 September 2001 the remit for the Local Government Committee should be— To consider and report on matters relating to (a) local government (including local government finance) and (b) other matters (excluding finance other than local government finance) which fall within the responsibility of the Minister for Finance and Local Government.

The next question is, that amendment S1M-2078.2, in the name of Alex Fergusson, on behalf of the Rural Development Committee, which seeks to amend motion S1M-2078, in the name of Mike Watson, on the general principles of the—

On a point of order. Before you take the vote, Presiding Officer, have you clarified whether, if amendment S1M-2078.2 is carried, amendment S1M-2078.1 will be taken or fall?

I thought that I clarified that at the beginning of the debate, but maybe I forgot. I certainly intended to make it clear that if amendment S1M-2078.2 is carried, amendment S1M-2078.1 falls. If amendment S1M-2078.2 falls, I will put the question on Elaine Murray's amendment S1M-2078.1. Whether that amendment is agreed to or not, the substantive motion will be put to the chamber.

The question is, that amendment S1M-2078.2, in the name of Alex Fergusson, be agreed to. Are we agreed?

No.
