The fifth question is, that motion S1M-3411, in the name of Patricia Ferguson, on the approval of statutory instruments, be agreed to. I am sorry to niggle at Mr Robson, but he did not tell us for which statutory instruments the Executive seeks approval. They are the first, third and fourth instruments, as set out in motion S1M-3402 in the business bulletin. The second instrument is omitted. Therefore, the question is that those three statutory instruments be approved.

Motion agreed to.

That the Parliament agrees that the following Orders be approved— The Food Protection (Emergency Prohibitions) (Amnesic Shellfish Poisoning) (Orkney) (No.3) (Scotland) Order 2002 (SSI 2002/408); The Food Protection (Emergency Prohibitions) (Amnesic Shellfish Poisoning) (West Coast) (No.6) (Scotland) Order 2002 (SSI 2002/307); and The Food Protection (Emergency Prohibitions) (Amnesic Shellfish Poisoning) (West Coast) (No.10) (Scotland) Order 2002 (SSI 2002/357)
