4.15 pm Decision Time—[Graeme Dey]

Motion agreed to.

The Presiding Officer

I am minded to accept a motion without notice to bring forward decision time to now. Minister, would you move such a motion?

Motion moved,

That, under Rule 11.2.4, Decision Time be brought forward to 5.07 pm.—[Graeme Dey]

The Presiding Officer

Does any member object if I move decision time forward to now?

Neil Findlay (Lothian) (Lab)

On a point of order, Presiding Officer. Does that mean that the bell will go now, or has the bell already gone?

The Presiding Officer

Both bells have already rung, and I am conscious that, if we have a division, we will suspend, so there will be a break.

Neil Findlay

The reason I ask is that members were advised that decision time would be 10 past 5.

The Presiding Officer

That is right. Decision time was delayed until 10 past 5. Either the motions and amendments will be agreed to unanimously, in which case there will not be a division and no one will miss out, or there will be a division, in which case there will be a technical break and plenty of time for members who have not yet made it to the chamber or who are online to join us. I am moving decision time forward by only five minutes.

Mr Findlay has made a point of order. I think that I will just wait till 10 past 5, if members do not mind.
