Agenda item 1 is to welcome Tess White, who joins us on the committee, and to invite her to declare any relevant interests.

I have no relevant interests to declare.

The Convener

Thank you. Tess is joining us to replace Alexander Stewart, whom I thank for his work on the committee, even though we have met only on a few occasions in session 6. With the consent of the committee, I would like to write to Alexander to thank him for his support so far.

Members indicated agreement.

Paul McLennan (East Lothian) (SNP)

I refer members and the public to my entry in the register of members’ interests: I am still serving as a councillor on East Lothian Council.

Thank you. Your declaration has been noted.
