Point of Order

The Presiding Officer (Ken Macintosh)

Before we turn to decision time, there are a couple of points of order to be made about last night’s vote. The first is from Finlay Carson, but we are having recurring difficulties with his connection tonight, as we did last night. I call Maurice Corry while we try to establish a line with Finlay Carson.

Maurice Corry (West Scotland) (Con)

Last night, I would have voted no on the legislative consent motion on the Covert Human Intelligence Sources (Criminal Conduct) Bill. However, I had a problem with my connection, which caused the system to blank out.

The Presiding Officer

Thank you, Mr Corry. That you would have voted no on that LCM has now been added as a point of order.

We are having the same difficulties with reaching Finlay Carson, so we will proceed to decision time and will hopefully re-establish a connection with him. He will then be able to clarify his point of order.
