With your permission, Presiding Officer, I will speak in response to that, rather than just say yes or no.

Those amendments in my name seek to make the same changes as amendments 4A and 4B sought to make. I maintain that that is the right thing to do for certainty and semantics, but it is clear to me that only the Scottish Conservatives are with me on that. There are extremely important debates to have this afternoon so, to ensure that there is time for that and given that my comments to amendments 4A and 4B are on the record, I will not move my further amendments in the group or any similar ones.
