The Executive has no strong view on this group of amendments. Alex Fergusson's amendment 8 is an alternative to Fergus Ewing's amendment 40.

Amendment 9 would fall if amendment 8 were agreed to. If we were to express a preference as to the approach that is adopted, we would prefer amendment 8. Similarly, between amendments 49 and 50, the Executive's preference would be for the approach that is set out in amendment 50.
