We move to question time—I apologise—to decision time, which sometimes masquerades as point of order time. There are three questions to be put as a result of today's business. The first question is, that amendment S3M-539.1.1, in the name of Jim Tolson, which seeks to amend amendment S3M-539.1, in the name of Johann Lamont, on the Glasgow Housing Association inspection report, be agreed to. Are we agreed?

Members:

No.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, the result of the division is: For 60, Against 60, Abstentions 0. As the motion promotes a change of position, I vote against it.

Motion disagreed to.
