Points of Order
I will update members on the points of order that were raised earlier today.
The business managers and the Parliamentary Bureau met a few minutes ago and have agreed on a proposal that the First Minister should make a statement in the chamber in the Scottish Parliament at 12.30 on Thursday. An hour and a half will be put aside for questions from party leaders and all members. That will run from 12.30 to 2 o’clock. The local government questions that were already scheduled for that day will continue at 2.30. Members may put their questions in person in the chamber or virtually in the hybrid way that is currently used.
That proposal will be put tomorrow night by the Government’s business manager, Graeme Dey, and members will have the opportunity to vote on it at that stage.
