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

The first question is, that motion S6M-12331, in the name of Maree Todd, on the National Care Service (Scotland) Bill at stage 1, be agreed to. Are we agreed?

Members:

No.

The Presiding Officer:

There will be a division. There will be a short suspension to allow members to access the digital voting system.

17:01 Meeting suspended.

17:04 On resuming—

The question is, that motion S6M-12331, in the name of Maree Todd, on the National Care Service (Scotland) Bill at stage 1, be agreed to. Members should cast their votes now.

The vote is closed.

On a point of order, Presiding Officer. My app refreshed and said that I had selected yes when I had not touched the screen. I do not understand why that has happened. That is why I raised a point of order before the vote had closed.

The Presiding Officer:

I regret that we cannot change any vote that has been recorded, Mr Mundell, but your point of order is on the record.

I genuinely do not understand that in this instance, because I had not touched the screen.

The Presiding Officer:

I will certainly ensure that the matter is looked into further as a matter of urgency. We will review that for you.
