The next item of business is stage 3 consideration of the Protection of Vulnerable Groups (Scotland) Bill. In dealing with the amendments, members should have with them the bill as amended at stage 2, which is SP bill 73A, the marshalled list, which contains the amendments that I have selected for debate, and the groupings that I have agreed.

For the first division on an amendment, the division bell will sound and proceedings will be suspended for five minutes. The period of voting for that division will be 30 seconds. Thereafter, I will allow a voting period of one minute for the first division after a debate; all other divisions will be 30 seconds.
