Before I put the final question, I have been asked to remind members that the informal photograph for the annual report will be taken in the black-and-white corridor immediately after decision time. Members who are not staying for the members' business debate are asked whether they would mind going out the other door and having a chat in the corridor for two minutes so that the photograph can be taken. I know that members are shy and retiring by nature, but it would be appreciated if a sufficient number turned up.

The seventh question is, that motion S1M-3480, in the name of Patricia Ferguson, on behalf of the Parliamentary Bureau, on the approval of a statutory instrument, be agreed to.

Motion agreed to.

That the Parliament agrees that the Food Protection (Emergency Prohibitions) (Amnesic Shellfish Poisoning) (West Coast) (No.12) (Scotland) Order 2002 (SSI 2002/430) be approved.
