The next item of business is the election of four members for appointment to the Scottish Parliamentary Corporate Body. I have received four valid nominations for appointment, which I will announce in alphabetical order. The nominees are: Claire Baker, Jackson Carlaw, Maggie Chapman and Christine Grahame.

As the number of candidates is equal to the number of vacant positions on the SPCB, I invite members to agree that there be a single vote to elect all the candidates. If any member objects to a single question being put, please say so now.

We are just confirming that no one is objecting remotely.

The question is, that the following members be selected for appointment to the Scottish Parliamentary Corporate Body: Claire Baker, Jackson Carlaw, Maggie Chapman and Christine Grahame. Members will have two minutes to cast their vote, and should press “Yes”, “No” or “Abstain” now.

Members voted.

I congratulate them on their appointment. [Applause.]
