Hello and welcome to our FINAL First Minister's Questions of the parliamentary session. (From next week onwards, you'll have to find something else to do at 12 noon on a Thursday because we won't be doing this again until the first week in September.)
Just because parliament is closing for the summer, it doesn't mean that political debate is going on holiday. So, before you head off with your bucket and spades, tune in to BBC Scotland tomorrow night when we will be broadcasting a TV special on the Scottish referendum debate.
- Time? - 19:00 - 20:00 on Friday
- Which station? - BBC One Scotland
- Chaired by? - Political editor Brian Taylor
- Panel? - Politicians from across the political spectrum
Even though it's the last day of term, rather than bringing in their board games, MSPs have a busy afternoon ahead, with several new pieces of legislation to vote on.
Labour's Johann Lamont wishes the FM well for "mandela Day". Once again she mentions anker Fred Goodwin and fromer Rangers man David Murray. She goes on to ask why the FM didn't meet the Dalai Lama when he was in Scotland?
First Minister Alex Salmond (FM) says he's discussing arrangements later for Nelson Mandela Day, clebrated on his birthday, on July 18.
FM goes over old ground from last week's FMQs, when Nicola Sturgeon was standing in, by saying the Dalai Lama visit to Scotland was a pastoral one.
Ms Lamont has further digs at the FM. She implies he was to blame for his party's show in the Glasgow council election result; hiccups in his referendum campaign and the failure of the Edinburgh Zoo panas to mate. How does the first minister explain his sudden loss of form?
FM says he'll "accept responsibility for many things", but jokes that the failure of the pandas to mate was not his fault.
