Point of Order

Rhoda Grant (Highlands and Islands) (Lab)

On a point of order, Presiding Officer. I apologise for not giving you notice of this point of order, but it has just come to light that Kate Forbes has issued a press release commenting on the recommendations of Lorne Crerar’s report into Highlands and Islands Enterprise. I have checked with the Scottish Parliament information centre and searched for inspired parliamentary questions on the matter, but I cannot find the report anywhere. Can you tell me how all MSPs can have access to the same information, especially on something that has been the subject of debate in this Parliament?

The Presiding Officer (Ken Macintosh)

I am not convinced that that is a point of order, but I will take it into consideration this afternoon, just to have a look at the matter that Ms Grant has alluded to.
