I take this opportunity to wish all members a peaceful, happy Christmas and a good new year.

Meeting of the Parliament 18 December 2014 : Thursday, December 18, 2014
The Presiding Officer (Tricia Marwick)

Good afternoon. The first item of business this afternoon is consideration of motion S4M-11926, in the name of Nicola Sturgeon, on the appointment of a junior Scottish minister. Members should note that the question on the motion will be put immediately after the debate and not at decision time. I call Nicola Sturgeon to move the motion. First Minister, you have about five minutes.
