2.00 pm Portfolio Questions
Health and Sport


followed by Ministerial Statement: Queensferry Crossing


5.00 pm Decision Time

and insert

5.30 pm Decision Time—[Joe FitzPatrick.]

Motion agreed to.

The Presiding Officer

The ministerial statement will be taken at 2.40, after portfolio questions, and decision time will be moved to 5.30 in consequence. I am conscious that members will want to hear the statement on the Queensferry crossing and to question the cabinet secretary on developments. I am also aware that there has been very little notice of the statement, for members and for the general public. That is not the way in which I would necessarily want business to be planned; I therefore ask the minister and fellow bureau members to reflect on that for the future, as I will do.
