That's all today from Holyrood Live on Wednesday 19 September 2018.
MSPs have defeated the Scottish government in a vote calling on ministers to "halt" national assessments for P1 pupils.
The assessments were introduced across Scotland last year, but some teachers and parents have criticised them.
Ministers insist they are not high-stakes tests, but help schools assess where pupils need help at an early age.
Opposition parties say they are not in line with play-based early learning and could create league tables of schools.
Members voted by 63 to 61 to pass a Conservative motion calling for a "halt" to the tests, with all of the opposition parties uniting against the government.
The largely symbolic motion does not bind the government to any action, but Education Secretary John Swinney said he would "reflect" on the defeat.
