That's all from Holyrood Live on Wednesday 31 October 2018.
The Scottish government has avoided defeat in parliament on the casting vote of the presiding officer.
MSPs were debating concerns about delays and disruptions to ferry services, but the vote on a motion calling for the government to remedy the failings was tied.
Health Secretary Jeane Freeman arrived late into the chamber leading to the Scottish government's amendment on the ferry service to be defeated by 62 votes to 61.
However, the vote on the amended motion results in a 62-62 vote tie so Presiding Officer Ken Macintosh used his casting vote against the motion.
Subsequent votes on expanding nursery places were also tied and also voted down by the chair.
