There are four questions to be put as a result of today’s business.

The first question is, that motion S6M-01554, in the name of Ben Macpherson, on the Carer’s Allowance Supplement (Scotland) Bill, be agreed to. As the motion is on the passing of the bill at stage 3

, there will be a division.

We will have a very short suspension to allow members to access the digital voting system.
