Motion agreed to,

That the Parliament welcomes the delivery of 80 key actions within the first 100 days of the new administration that will have a positive impact on the people of Scotland by leading the COVID-19 recovery, supporting NHS and care services, tackling the climate crisis, backing economic recovery and creating jobs, supporting communities and helping children and families, and recognises these actions as the foundation of improved outcomes for Scotland’s people that will continue to be delivered through the forthcoming Programme for Government, the COVID-19 recovery programme and the shared policy programme agreed between the Scottish Government and the Scottish Green Party.

I propose to ask a single question on the two Parliamentary Bureau motions, unless any member objects.

The question is, that motions S6M-00994, on substitutions to committee membership, and S6M-00995, on committee membership, in the name of George Adam, on behalf of the Parliamentary Bureau, be agreed to.

Motions agreed to,

That the Parliament agrees that—

Collette Stevenson be appointed as the Scottish National Party substitute on the Net Zero, Energy and Transport Committee

Evelyn Tweed be appointed as the Scottish National Party substitute on the Social Justice and Social Security Committee.

That the Parliament agrees that—

Willie Rennie be appointed to replace Beatrice Wishart as a member of the Education, Children and Young People Committee

Beatrice Wishart be appointed to replace Liam McArthur as a member of the Rural Affairs, Islands and Natural Environment Committee.

That concludes decision time.
