There is one question to be put as a result of today’s business. The question is, that motion S6M-13664, in the name of Shirley-Anne Somerville, on the Gender Representation on Public Boards (Amendment) (Scotland) Bill, be agreed to. As this 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.
