Parliamentary Bureau Motion
The next item of business is consideration of a Parliamentary Bureau motion. I ask Joe FitzPatrick to move motion S5M-04611, on First Minister’s questions, portfolio and general questions and topical questions.
That the Parliament agrees that the period for Members to—
lodge a First Minister’s Question for answer on Thursday 20 April should end at 9.30am on Tuesday 18 April;
submit their names for Portfolio and General Questions on Wednesday 19 and Thursday 20 April should end at noon on Monday 10 April; and
lodge a Topical Question for answer on Tuesday 18 April should be 9.30am on Tuesday 18 April.—[Joe FitzPatrick]
Motion agreed to.
The question on the motion will be put at decision time.
Before we move to decision time, I am sure that members will wish to join me in welcoming to the gallery Mr Akbar Khan, the secretary general of the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association. [Applause.]
