The first question is, that motion S5M-23163, in the name of Michael Russell, on the UK Withdrawal from the European Union (Continuity) (Scotland) Bill, be agreed to. Are we agreed?

Members:

No.

The Presiding Officer:

There will be a division. As members know, we will have to allow all members, including those online, to access the voting platform, so I will suspend Parliament for a few moments to allow members to do exactly that.

We will go straight to the vote. This will be a one-minute division.

The vote is now closed. If any member does not think that they have been able to vote, please let us know either through a point of order or online.

On a point of order, Presiding Officer. I was unable to vote this evening due to a technical issue. I would have voted in favour.

Did I hear you correctly that you would have voted for the motion?

The Presiding Officer:

Thank you very much, Ms Denham. I will make sure that your name is added to the voting roll.
