Adoption and Children (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 — Section 31 — Adoption by certain couples — 7 Dec 2006 at 11:30

No.

There will be a division.

While the vote is proceeding, I advise members that, in view of the number of extensions to individual time limits this morning, the Presiding Officers are likely, with the agreement of business managers, to be inclined to invite a motion from the floor this afternoon to extend the overall time available for today's business by 30 minutes, if necessary. That would mean that the debate on whether the bill be passed would start at around 4.30 pm, with decision time at 5.30 pm.
