The Sunday Whip

Well, this one is easy. There were no substantive motions up for a vote this week on account of there being no meeting on Thursday and Wednesday being taken up mostly with Question Time - in fact, the only decisions MSPs needed to take were on the Business Motions, which were waved through.

So for the record, next week, we'll see a European and External Relations Committee Debate on the European Commission Legislative Work Programme, Government Debates on the Zero Waste Plan and NHS Quality Strategy, and the initial stages of the William Simpson's Home (Transfer of Property etc.) (Scotland) Bill and Crofting Reform (Scotland) Bill.

Maybe, just maybe, MSPs' minds will be concentrated on their own mandates now. Well, except for Margaret Curran and Cathy Jamieson, who I think under the circumstances, can probably be forgiven for heading to Westminster and attending to the confusion there...
