There are seven questions to be put as a result of today's business.

On this morning's debate on student and graduate debt, if amendment S2M-2866.2, in the name of Jim Wallace, is agreed to, amendment S2M 2866.1, in the name of Murdo Fraser, will fall. On this morning's debate on age discrimination in the national health service, if amendment S2M-2861.3, in the name of Andy Kerr, is agreed to, amendment S2M-2861.1, in the name of Nanette Milne, will fall.

The first question is, that amendment S2M-2866.2, in the name of Jim Wallace, which seeks to amend motion S2M-2866, in the name of Fiona Hyslop, on student and graduate debt, be agreed to. Are we agreed?

Motion, as amended, agreed to.

Resolved,

That the Parliament agrees that the support arrangements for students ordinarily resident in Scotland should continue to be based on fairness and affordability; agrees that such a system should include free tuition, regardless of family income, and bursary support for those from less well-off backgrounds; welcomes the increased level of the Young Students' Bursary and its extended eligibility; notes that liable graduates pay the graduate endowment in respect of the higher education benefits that they have received with the payments adding to the fund to pay support bursaries for students from poorer backgrounds, and recognises that the publication of the survey of Scottish students' income and expenditure, later this year, will allow for a better understanding of the situation facing students and the continued development of policy to meet their needs.
