On a point of order, Deputy Presiding Officer. Have you received a request from the leader of the Scottish Socialist Party to make a personal statement apologising for that party's official spokesperson's crass comment in The Scotsman that:

"The war is bad for the Iraqis but good for our votes"?

If not, can you advise me how the Parliament can formally disassociate itself from those remarks and send a strong message to the servicemen and servicewomen who are risking their lives to free Iraq that that comment does not reflect the view of the vast majority of members?
