The next item of business this afternoon is stage 3 proceedings on the Salmon and Freshwater Fisheries (Consolidation) (Scotland) Bill. Members should have in front of them the bill as amended at stage 2, and the marshalled list, which contains the one amendment that has been lodged. As there is only one amendment, there are no groupings.

This is the first of three bills that we are considering this afternoon to which amendments have been lodged. I will therefore allow an extended voting period of two minutes for the first division occurring on an amendment to any of the three bills. Any subsequent division that is the first division after a debate on a group of amendments will last one minute; any other divisions will last 30 seconds.
