There are four questions to be put as a result of today’s business. I remind members that, if the amendment in the name of Donald Cameron is agreed to, the amendment in the name of Sarah Boyack will fall.

The first question is, that amendment S6M-06984.1, in the name of Donald Cameron, which seeks to amend motion S6M-06984, in the name of Angus Robertson, on European Union retained law, be agreed to. Are we agreed?

Members:

No.

The Presiding Officer:

There will be a division. There will be a brief pause, to allow members to access the digital voting system.

16:55 Meeting suspended.

16:58 On resuming—

I remind members that, if the amendment in the name of Donald Cameron is agreed to, the amendment in the name of Sarah Boyack will fall.

We come to the vote on amendment S6M-06984.1, in the name of Donald Cameron. Members should cast their votes now.

The vote is closed.

That concludes decision time.
