Brian Taylor

I do not want to keep members, but on an entirely different note and before I suspend proceedings, I draw members’ attention to the fact that today is the last day on which Brian Taylor, the BBC Scotland political editor, will be covering our affairs.

All of us here know Brian very well. He has had a long and distinguished career in broadcasting and has spent more than two decades—every moment of our political life here in the Scottish Parliament—covering this institution. He has done so with authority and insight and often with humour and wit. He has been the conduit for many people in Scotland of all our affairs, deliberations, decisions and machinations. I thank him on behalf of the Parliament and of the Scottish people for the work that he has done and for his contribution to public life. [Applause.]

On that note, I suspend proceedings until half past two.
