Questions 1-9 and 13 were asked. Question 10 was withdrawn. Questions 11 and 12 were not asked. The Presiding Officer invited party leaders to ask questions to the First Minister after question 2.

Point of Order

The Leader of the House raised a Point of Order, asking for a ruling on whether Adam Price’s supplementary to Question 4 had been inappropriate under Standing Order 13.9. The Llywydd said that she had listened to the question very carefully and that the Member had not made any accusation that was out of order. It was clearly a question put to the First Minister, and the First Minister clearly answered the question, and there was nothing more for the Llywydd to say on the matter.
