There is one question to be put as a result of today’s business. The question is, that motion S6M-13407, in the name of Angela Constance, on the Post Office (Horizon System) Offences (Scotland) Bill, be agreed to. As that is a motion to pass the bill at stage 3, the question must be decided by division. There will be a short suspension to allow members to access the digital voting system.

Meeting suspended.

On resuming—
