The Presiding Officer (Ken Macintosh)

The next item of business is consideration of two Parliamentary Bureau motions. I ask Graeme Dey, on behalf of the bureau, to move motions S5M-20998, on approval of a Scottish statutory instrument, and S5M-20999, on suspension and variation of standing orders.

Motions moved,

That the Parliament agrees that the Direct Payments to Farmers (Legislative Continuity) (Scotland) (Miscellaneous Amendments) Regulations 2020 be approved.

That the Parliament agrees that, subject to its agreement to the general principles of the Budget (Scotland) (No.4) Bill, for the purposes of consideration of the Bill at stage 3, in Rule 9.16.6 of Standing Orders -

(a) the words “or 3” be omitted, and

(b) the words “Notice of any amendment at Stage 3 shall be given by lodging it with the Clerk no later than 4.30pm on Wednesday 4 March 2020.” be inserted at the end.—[Graeme Dey]
