The next item of business is consideration of two Parliamentary Bureau motions. I ask Graeme Dey, on behalf of the Parliamentary Bureau, to move motion S5M-14960, on the size of a committee, and motion S5M-14981, on committee meeting times.

That the Parliament agrees, further to motion S5M-13781 in the name of Graeme Dey, that the size of the Environment, Climate Change and Land Reform Committee be reduced from 9 to 7 members.

That the Parliament agrees that, under Rule 12.3.3B of Standing Orders, the Finance and Constitution Committee and the Culture, Tourism, Europe and External Affairs Committee can meet jointly during the afternoon meeting of the Parliament after First Minister’s Questions on Thursday 29 November 2018 for the purpose of considering business arising from the UK’s exit from the European Union.—[Graeme Dey]
