Good morning, and welcome to the 19th meeting in 2020 of the Education and Skills Committee. I remind everyone present to turn mobile phones and other devices to silent for the duration of the meeting.
We have received apologies from Rona Mackay MSP. We are joined by Gil Paterson MSP, who is substituting for Ms Mackay.
There has been a change in committee membership. I put on record our thanks to Gail Ross for her work as a member of the committee. We wish her well in her new parliamentary duties.
We welcome to the committee for the first time Kenneth Gibson. Under item 1, I invite him to declare any relevant interests.
I have none to declare.
I remind everybody who is dialling in remotely to wait just a few seconds for the microphones to activate.
