We should be clear that the amendments that the SNP has lodged are all amendments that the Transport and the Environment Committee has rejected roundly. We should also be clear that the proposals that the SNP puts forward are the same as those that were rejected in the defeat last week of Mr Neil's member's bill, the Public Appointments (Parliamentary Approval) (Scotland) Bill.

It is unfortunate that the SNP is trying to turn the debate on the Water Industry (Scotland) Bill into yet another opportunity to attack and degrade people who stand for public appointments.
