Point of Order

Margaret Mitchell (Central Scotland) (Con)

On a point of order, Presiding Officer. Will you reflect on the length of time taken for questions and answers this afternoon? We only got to question 9. The cabinet secretary’s answers were overly long and, at times, frivolous and prevented those asking questions, and those who had follow-up questions, from contributing.

The Presiding Officer (Ken Macintosh)

I note the point of order and will take it under consideration.

Meeting closed at 15:15.
