The Executive amendments in the group are technical drafting amendments and I invite Parliament to support them. Amendment 37 is intended to introduce consistency on the issue of permission. We are content with David Mundell's amendment 37A, which would add the term "searching" to amendment 37. We were curious to see Jamie McGrigor's amendment 7, which proposes to insert the word "fish" into section 1A. No doubt Mr McGrigor has good reasons for that—we are all interested in learning them. We believe that Sylvia Jackson's amendment 51 does not add anything of value to the bill, but we leave it to Parliament to decide whether to support it.

I move amendment 37.
